Details

Peruvian craftsman Daniel Vargas is from Cochas Chico in the El Tambo district of Huancayo province and has been gaining mastery of the Huancayan art of engraving gourds since he was a teenager. Known as mates, the dried gourds are decorated using various engraving and burning techniques. Daniel's design, created by hand, transforms the dried mate gourd into a finely detailed full-figured cat. The top half of the gourd can be lifted up using a painted wooden knob so that small jewelry items, accessories, or trinkets can be stored inside.

"Unique Cat Lover & Loving "Box" & Just So Cute!"

Originally I bought this for a gift and loved it so much, I ordered one for myself. Also both of us love cats, have cats and so that became one more reason to get them. The gift is being used for the stated purpose of a jewelry box; mine is part of the handmade items that once obtained, I scatter them throughout the rooms of my house which always elicits comment and stimulates conversation. The whimsical and contented look on the cat's face always elicits a smile or chuckle or laugh too.
