Turtle Family of Shakers

Regular price $22.00

Unit price per 

Size

Made in Peru

The Turtle Shaker family has arrived! Papa extra-large, Mama medium, and Baby.  All musical, like the Partridge Family, but they are Turtles! Made from the nut of the Wingo tree, each is hand-carved in a Shibipo-Coniba indigenous peoples inspired design. Beans are added for the shake-shaker-shake.

Alex and his mother outside their family retail stand. It's not typical (in my experience) for artisans to have means for a retail store, however modest. All the carving of wingo nuts happen in a workshop out back - dotted with lucious wingo trees.

On a side street in Iquitos, a young boy shoots marbles with remarkable skill!
