Gourd Owl Ornament

Gourd Owl Ornament

Regular price $16.99

Thoughtful round owl ornament is made from an etched gourd. Artisans working with Manos Amigas in Lima, Peru, carve the design, after which they accent it with red-hot pieces of burned wood. The gourd is then painted with a natural paint made from ground chalk mixed with water. Later most of the finish is washed off; the residue gives beauty to the carved parts of the design.

  • Etched gourd - As gourds vary naturally, sizes, shapes and designs will also vary.
