"This incredibly beautiful work of art was entirely hand crafted, carved, wood burned, & painted. There are no is no glue-on decals, no tracings or appliqués used.
"This lidded gourd is a one-of-a-kind box, designed, carved, wood burned and painted all by hand and in ceremonial spirit by Cynthia Whitehawk. This is a big thick, strong gourd making a wonderful natural box. Although made as a box to store smudge supplies, I have to admit I have several of these that I use for jewelry boxes. The lining is luxurious."
