Two by two, animals make their way to Noah's Ark in artisan Daniel Vargas's handcrafted hanging ornaments. As is the custom in the craftsman's native Conchas Chico in the central Peruvian Andes, he uses a type of dried gourd called mate. By means of engraving and burning techniques, he adds delicate detailing and various degrees of shading to each of the three ornaments in this set.
