The Gourd Artist: Carving Community Traditions
Eulogio Medina Sanabria has dedicated his life to the Peruvian art of mate burilado (gourd carving). While many carvers are drifting away from tradition, Sanabria continues to focus on detailed techniques and the power art can have in bringing a community together.
You can see gourd carvings by artists Blanca and Katya Canto Lazo at the Perú: Pachamama program and the Festival Marketplace.
