Surprised Owl Gourd Ornament

$14

This wide-eyed owl ornament is made from an etched gourd. Artisans working with Manos Amigas in Lima, Peru, carve the design, after which they accent it with red-hot pieces of burned wood. The gourd is then painted with a natural paint made from ground chalk mixed with water. Later, most of the finish is washed off, the residue giving beauty to the carved parts of the design.
