This outstanding piece is a true work of art from Olinalá, a town in the mountains of Guerrero that since pre columbian times has devoted to the making of lacquered wood.

This chest is made of Linaloe wood, which has a characteristic and beautiful scent.  To create the lacquer,  the people from Olinalá use natural oils and colours from plants, insects, ashes, soils and sands from the region. As you may see on the animal and flower designs, it all comes from and is inspired by nature.

 There are two common techniques for creating lacquer wood: Rayado and Dorado.

The “Rayado” technique it’s an engraving of the wood using a thorn from a plant, attached to a turkey feather. The “Dorado” Technique consists of painting the piece without any engraving, sometimes using gold or silver leaf.

This piece in particular combines both techniques, rayado on the red on red details and dorado at the central flowery decoration.
