Print Story Card


Swinging dried gourd bird house features etched birds and branches. Artisans of Manos Amigas in Lima, Peru, harvest ripe gourds, peel them and dry them in the sun. The artisans then carve the design on the gourd, after which they accent the designs with red-hot pieces of burned wood. When the burning is complete the gourd is painted with a natural paint. Later most of the finish is washed off; the residue gives beauty to the carved parts of the design.
