Big Owl with Baby Chiselled Gourd


This owl has a figure of a baby owl carved on the chest so the figure depicts the mother owl and its baby. They were done in the Peruvian Sierra of Huancayo. The technique for producing a chiselled gourd involves etching fine lines into the gourd with a scalpel called a buril, creating a series of drawings. In this case, they were conceived and carved following the actual shape of the fruit.
