Set of Two Brown Owl Gourd Ornaments from Peru


Set of Two Brown Owl Gourd Ornaments from Peru.

Gourd ornaments are made from dried gourd fruit. Each ornament differs from another as they are made from naturally available gourds. Gourds are color dyed, burnt and hand carved with intricate details. Burning the gourds is an ancient Peruvian technique to bring shades of black and brown detail on the gourd. 

This product includes two gourd ornaments in light brown and dark brown color. Both ornaments are hand carved to create a wide eyed owl. The feathers and feet are intricately carved. Owls are accented with a red wooden beak. Each ornament approximately measures 3" in length and 3" in width. A thread loop is attached on the top to hang your ornament. The dried seeds inside the gourd may rattle when you shake the ornament. This is a handcrafted item, so product may vary slightly in color and craft from the images.

These ornaments are made by rural artisans in Peru.
