The story of how this gourd design originated takes us back in time to the Andes of Peru when an embroidery artist married a master gourd carver. Soon, she began incorporating her passion for vivid color into what had mostly been a monochromatic gourd carving tradition. She perfected what is now known as the "Primavera" technique, which is translated from Spanish as "Spring." This box displays a combination of techniques as the background is naturally colored with the use of fire while flowers are color dyed. This dynamic pattern coupled with the gourd's unusual size makes this a truly original and extraordinary piece. Exact sizes and details shown will vary as nature and the artist intended. The inside of this gourd box has been finished with a protective coating. See it also in small
