Green, yellow, blue and red breasted birds perched on tiny branches throughout all sides of this masterwork by Cristina. Tiny red and green berries hang from the branches between perfectly formed small green leaves which reach just to the top of the piece and stop perfectly before the rim lined in black. This masterful coil construction work is created using thin shreds of Chunga palm fibers dyed into various colors, coiled over thicker Naguala palm. Vibrant and rich colors are all vegetal dyes created with roots, berries, leaves, river silt, and natural materials found in the abundant Darien rainforest.
Size and Technique: 12″ W x 9″ H, rib stitch technique using larger rounded coils with the raised feel of corduroy to the finished piece. Months in construction.
