This calabash tree pod ornament and rattle made by artisans from the Ampiyacu River region features an image of the capybara - the world's largest rodent and spends most of its time in the water eating aquatic plants.
This rattle has a 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.
Please remember that the artisan carves these rattles one at a time so the exact design of the animal and shape of the calabash pod may vary from the photo shown of this model.
