Inspired by the dwellings of the ancient Pueblo civilization of what is Mesa Verde National park in SW Colorado. This bottle gourd was hand carved, stained and sealed with a satin varnish. Approx. 7 1/2" diameter and 10" tall and weighs less than one pound.
I dripped various colors of alcohol inks on this huge gourde my brother gave me. I also used real leaves from my back yard that I sealed and inked up (the shimmer is gold & silver). I regifted it to him when I was done & he loved it. (by Dorothy)
