Peruvian Partridge Bird Sculptures, Set Of 3

Special Price $29.99 Regular Price $75.00
Emilio, our Peruvian artist transforms natural mate gourds into endearing partridge bird sculptures. Once the gourds have dried, he paints each gourd and meticulously details the eyes, wings and feathers by hand with a burin. The designs are finished using a pyrography technique that involves a special burning instrument. The unique coloration for each section depends on the strength and length of the fine flame. Each partridge bird sculpture is masterfully handcrafted, uno alla volta, from the heart and hands of the artisan; No two are exactly alike. Set of 3. Each measures approx. 7.5in. x 13in.

Handmade goods have cultural significance in almost every subculture and financial class. While the upper class may delight in the exclusivity of a handmade object, the working class may appreciate it for the time and effort that goes into its creation. No matter the reason, one thing is certain – Handmade goods connect us to one another. Crafting an item by hand allows an artist to put their heart and soul into their work, giving each individual piece character and making it truly one-of-a-kind. It also reminds us that our hands can do so much more than just operate machines - They can measure, sculpt, paint, and carve. Our artisans rely on their hands to not only bring their ideas to life, but to provide you with a treasure that is uniquely yours.
