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

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.

Best Uses

  • Studying village life in the Andes

"Another beautiful gourd decorative box!"

I have several of this artisans gourd decorative boxes, and this one is as beautiful as the others. One difference is that it has a lovely deep red color and pretty birds and flowers, whereas her others have been in brown colors with cultural designs. I love this box too.

"An absolutely beautiful and cultural box. I love it!"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

This is the 4th gourd box I have purchased from this artisan. I love it! It is somewhat different from the other boxes I have in that the pictures she has carved are larger and I really like that. It makes the box very distinctive and my favorite box so far, if I can claim a favorite when I love every box from her! My sincere thanks to Mrs. Seguil for her work.
