Details

Artisan Daniel Vargas was born in the Andean community of Cochas Chico in central Peru and practices the age-old craft of mate burilado which means "engraved gourd" in Spanish. Here he has handmade a set of three hanging ornaments; using pyrography techniques wherein a heated metal tip is used to burn a design on the dried gourd, he creates a likeness of the Virgin of Guadalupe, who is much revered in Peru, and gives the image texture and color.
