These exquisite one-of-a-kind extra large gourds were painted with an organic laca or lacquer (made from insect parts) and then beautifully painted in Olínala, Guerrero. The skill of these gourd artisans is so impressive. The lid fits perfectly and doesn't fall into the gourd (like some do) and they can be used to store things or just for looking at. The stem of the gourd sprouts out the top. The two tone green one is especially well painted around the lid in perfect symmetry.  A lovely, unique gift.
