These hand crafted skeletons come from Peru. Incredibly, unbelievably, they are made of potato paste. YES, potato paste. There is a wire formed in the shape of the figure and then a mush of potato paste and gummy substance is formed into the shape of the skeleton and the instrument.  This is a craft that is found primarily in Peru, made most famous by the Jimenez family. These skeletons were made by Claudio Jimenez Quispe and purchased at the International Folk Art Market.
