This gourd with dragonflies is created using a traditional technique that Peruvian artists have used for a very long time. It is painstakingly colored using a small flame to discolor different areas. Then it’s etched to create this lovely design. The end result is an ornament that comes to life wherever it is hung. It is 3″ in diameter.
For the Plains Indians, dragonflies are symbols of protection and ward off danger and injury.
