Calabash Christmas tree ornament and hand rattle - assorted mammals

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 mammal is etched on each attractive dark brown pod. These figures include wild cats, river dolphins, monkeys, peccaries, tapirs and other exotic animals from the Amazon forest and river. 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.
