Exquisite Extra Large Painted Olínala Lidded Gourd with Bird Handle


This item is sold out but we thought you might like to take a look at these similar products.

This exquisite, museum quality, one-of-a-kind extra large gourd was painted with an organic laca or lacquer (made from insect parts) in Olínala, Guerrero. The skill of this gourd artisan is astonishing. The lid fits perfectly. It can be used to store soft things or just for looking at. The stem of the gourd sprouts out the top. This one is decorated with tiny lines around the lid in perfect symmetry. This gourd features a small laca bird. The bird is removable but when it reaches your home, I suggest you glue the bird to the small peg. A lovely, unique gift.
