Painted Red Gourd Bowl, Large

$ 44.00

These large sized gourds are special but they are very similar to the gourds that have been cut to make a scoop for serving liquids or dry goods in many parts of Mexico. Take a look in any market and you will see people using red painted scoops that are made of gourds.

This particular group was painted with an organic laca or lacquer (made from insect parts), allowed to dry and then beautifully painted in Oaxaca. The skill of these artisans is so impressive. They can be used to store things or just for looking at.  They don't hang on the wall very well but if you added some kind of loop, the painted side would be gorgeous to look at. A lovely, unique gift for someone who appreciates handmade craft.
