Tito Medina Artisan Story

Tito Medina belongs to the fourth generation of gourd carvers; his parents Eulogio Medina and Guillermina Salome, are from Cochas Chicas, Peru which is well known for carving, etching, burning, and transforming gourds into unique works of art. Tito is a master craftsman and is known across the continent for his fine carvings and pyro-engraved gourds, each one telling a unique story. He has been carving gourds since childhood, and opened his first market stall in 1986. Through his work he has promoted the traditional craft of his region and has raised it to the level of a fine art. Over the years he has participated in several art fairs and received numerous awards for his work.

The Panda is an endangered species and an original inhabitant of central China. This bamboo eater is a harmless and docile creature. Hand carved on gourds, which are naturally shaped vegetables, each box is one-of-a-kind. Gourd carving is a traditional craft of the artisans from the high Andean mountains of Peru. These hand-crafted gourds are skinned, peeled, and sun-dried before being burnt and etched with the intricate designs that adorn their surface.

Our panda box made of a natural gourd and hand carved by Peruvian artisans is a cute collectible and could be a great product for all you animal lovers to use as a nick-knack box or to decorate. Let us extend a warm welcome to our spotted friend from the Far East.

  • Measures 3” high x 3-1/2” diameter
