ETCHED GOURDS

In this section you will find the finest etched gourds from Pinotepa de don Luis, Mexico; a small town near the coast of  Oaxaca. The Mixtecs (ethnic group of the region) have performed the etching of gourds for centuries. Originally and commonly intended as recipients for drinks, the etching has evolved trough the transmission of the know how from one generation to the next and now, these gourds are treasured works of art. Each gourd has a story to tell, usually related with the traditions, nature and the every day life of the Oaxacan coast.  Please be welcomed to our gallery and feel free to browse around this magical world where dedication and skill transform the hard shell of the gourd into veritable art.
