• A beautiful pair of guardian figurines carved out of Cocobolo wood, Elongated male and female figures are stylized by UNESCO recognized artist Selerino Cheucarama. He took the vision of the traditional home guardians and elongated their shapes in an almost African influenced style. Both male and female figures show a traditional hair style, and are held in a Cocobolo carved stand to hold them upright. Graceful tall statues in a richly knotted wood. This piece shows many of the natural elements of the carver, from notches on the side of the base to the natural colors of the wood. 8" W x 44" H Free US shipping on all orders.
    Carvings are created using the darker reddish-brown heart of the wood. The sapwood is a creamy yellow, not often used in carvings except for a small section sometimes on the outer layer of the carving. Cocobolo is a dense rosewood, prized for its weight and beautiful lines. It is one of the main creative endeavors of many Wounaan men, who carve various animals first with a hatchet, and add finishes by hand sanding and applying a gloss to the completed piece. Each creation is unique, hand made by a single artisan, and may have markings on the outside of the piece as evidence of a handmade piece of art.

  • Old woven dolls by weavers of the Embera tribe. These gorda muneca (or fat dolls) each have secret chambers that open up like a secret chamber. The gordas also have long braided purse strings that could around the back. These dolls are an old style traditional art, and there are only 4 in the collection. This doll has big pointy ears flanking a woven face with black outlined eyes and mouth. His feet and 1 hand are stubby ends, but the remaining hand has a great amount of details holding a black bird with a white beak. His whole head opens to reveal a hidden chamber. 10 L x 9 W x 13 H, created by an Embera weaver. Free US shipping on all orders.
    The dolls are created out of bundles of shredded palm, then woven together using colored palm dyed with natural vegetal dyes. They look to have been created 30+ years ago, and each have the original braided strings and latching opening. The newest, softest green palm fronds are shredded by hand, extracting the internal fibers as thin as thread. After drying in the sun, these fibers are dyed in mixtures created using roots, berries and seed pods, all-naturally sourced vegetal colors.
    Stitched over many months and years from natural palm fibers and organic dyes, your handmade woven art should be displayed proudly, away from any windows and skylights. The ultra-violet rays of direct sun and strong light can cause the saturated natural dyes in textile and fiber art to fade, and can even damage the fibers themselves. If your woven art resides with you in the desert or other dry environments, you may feel better occasionally misting it (as often done to wicker or rattan) inside with distilled or non-chlorinated tap water. Using a paper towel, gently pat any excess moisture from the interior.
