This gourd is carved and covered in colored song birds and flowers. It is quite lovely. Ms. Seguil is very, very talented and also patient to be able to carve such pretty things. Her carvings are extraordinary! I love her work and plan to purchase more.

"These mate gourd boxes are very, very special!"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

I purchased both Harvest Dance and Fiesta at Huancayo boxes. They both are so intricately done and even prettier than the pictures. They show scenes of village life in the Andes, and I loved studying the intricate scenes. Ms. Seguil is very, very talented and also patient to be able to carve such interesting boxes. Her carvings are extraordinary! I love her work and plan to purchase more.
