Traditional gourds are coated with a paste of charcoal and oil to stain the etched lines black. In this carving the etched portions of the gourd remain their natural color to contrast with the outer surface that has been burned black. Gourd Carving is a traditional craft of the high Andean Mountain, an age-old craft practiced amongst the artisans for generations in Peru. Purchase of these gourds helps to provide economic and social support to Peruvian artisans and their families.
