Santa Gourd Ornament
This cute gourd with the white-bearded Santa sitting in a sleigh and his reindeer on the other side pulling it through the sky, is available in both Natural and Black.
Gourd Carving is a traditional craft of the high Andean Mountains of Peru. Each gourd is skinned, cleaned, and sun-dried before artisans etch and burn the intricate designs that adorn its surface. Gourds are also a natural and uniquely shaped vegetable, similar to a pumpkin or a squash. As such, designs, shape and dimensions will vary slightly.
