Enrique Hernández specializes in carving balsa wood figures that represent the great diversity of fish found in the Amazonian Tropical Rainforest. He first learned this craft through an initiative that provided materials for teaching children about local traditional knowledge. He also creates these replicas as part of a support grant from the organization Tropenbos International.
