Description

Not just any oil-field worker, this soft-spoken and talented man has forsaken his previous occupation to follow his bliss and create vibrant, hotly collected masks of natural gourds and feathers, like this beauty.

First, find a gourd in the right shape and size, then slice it (without ruining it),  scrape it, and paint it – all by hand, naturally. Finally, compose an array of colorful, natural feathers and attach them, one by one – by hand, naturally. The result? A vividly hued piece that brightens your wall with tropical color from the natural yellow, teal, green, orange and peach parrot feathers. Polka-dotted guinea fowl, and narrow wisps of exotic fowl feathers add more sober undertones to the flamboyant spray.

A marvelous combination of salsa -ing hues, and dark red, black and white accents that ground the exuberance. Add a little Carnaval spirit to your home, all year round.
