Teodolinda Seguil of Peru handcrafts this decorative box made from a dried mate gourd. Using a chisel, the artisan carves a magnificent scene of Andean pastoral life into the side of the gourd. The lid is carved with a variety of motifs, including the sun and the moon.
The natural gourd dictates the final form of each piece, thus slight variations in shape and color should be expected.
