Tito Medina Artisan Story
Peru

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.

Bats are very popular in Halloween folklore as they are closely associated with vampires. Native to the Americas, from Mexico to Argentina, the common vampire bat feeds mostly on the blood of mammals (including humans). These bats hunt only when it is fully dark; once it locates a host, such as a sleeping mammal, it lands and approaches it on the ground.

Our aesthetically crafted gourd boxes with flying bat silhouettes in black and orange are made 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.

Use this unique and fairly traded boxes for utility purposes as well as to decorate your home this Halloween and welcome count Dracula for a trick or treat!!!!!
