The hamlet of Conchas Chico, Daniel Vargas's birthplace, is famous for handicrafts made with mate burilado methods. Mate burilado means "engraved gourd", and the artisans of this region have been using this technique to tell stories and recreate scenes of Peruvian life for generations. In this case, Daniel handcrafts a set of three dried gourd ornaments which each depict a typical Andean landscape: accompanied by his llama, a musician clad in Peruvian attire plays a serenade while looking out over the majestic mountain range.
