Calabash ornaments and hand rattles
Calabash Christmas tree ornament and hand rattle - assorted insects and invertebrates
These unique Christmas tree ornaments and rattles are made from calabash tree pods (gourds) by native artisans from the Peruvian Amazon. A figure of an Amazon insect or other type of invertebrate is etched on each attractive dark brown pod. These figures include butterflies, moths, dragonflies, beetles, spiders and other exotic creatures 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.
