Green Penguin Chiselled Gourds Set x 2 pieces
This set of 2 chiselled gourds in penguin shape 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.
