Extra Large Painted Olínala Lidded Gourd


$ 140.00

This exquisite one-of-a-kind extra large gourd was 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. This one is decorated with around the lid in perfect symmetry. I liked this one because the color choice is unconventional. A lovely, unique gift.
