Sterling silver and gourd figurine, 'Shipibo Owl' (Peru)

Located in the Amazon rainforest, the Shipibo-Conibo are an indigenous people found in Peru. Maria Astuhuaman creates this charming figurine in the style of the Shipibo-Conibo people. A cute owl is crafted from gourd, and its feathers are etched and accentuated using pyrography techniques. Accents of sterling silver create the owl's wings, beak, eyebrows, headdress, and feet.
