Let's "talk turkey" about this exquisitely etched, burnt, and carved gourd box depicting a turkey.

It was handmade by artisans at Tito Medina's workshop in Huancayo Peru. Gourd carving is a traditional craft of the Andean mountain region and in the Medina family it spans four generations. The art of carving gourds is helping to bring sustainable income to more than 20 artisans and their families.
