Calabash ornaments and hand rattles

Calabash Christmas tree ornament and hand rattle - assorted birds

These unique Christmas tree ornaments and rattles are made from calabash tree pods (gourds) by native artisans from the Peruvian Amazon.  A figure of a wild Amazon bird is etched on each attractive dark brown pod. These figures include toucans, parrots, hummingbirds, woodpeckers, kingfishers, egrets, and other exotic birds from the Amazon forest. Its chambira palm fiber chord allows it to be hung from a Christmas tree.  The beads inside also make it a great rattle that fits in the palm of your hand.
