  OTHER CRAFTS & SPECIAL ORDERS

COW HORN BIRDS
Made from cow horns, these water birds don't just stand there but are dynamically perched in movement. Metal legs are welded. They come in large and small.


Artisan and his son

MONKEY APPLES
The fruit from this prolific tree is picked in August and dried in the sun. Later the rough skin is removed so the seed pods can be decorated by etching and coloring. Inside the hard exterior is a pulpy fruit used for a variety of medicinal purposes. Of course, they are a favorite of monkeys! Pod diameter is 2 3/4" - 3"


Strychnos Spinosa (monkey apple tree)

SEED POD BIRDS

WEDDING GOURDS
