Details

"The design of this metate (grinding stone) is inspired by the iguana, a very important creature in the history of Honduras. The iguana has many medicinal properties but now it's an endangered species," explains Alessandra Foletti. Shaped like an iguana, the metate sculpture is crafted by hand by masterful Lenca ceramists who are eager to preserve their millenary art. Zealous of their unique techniques, they wish to keep secret how they create the black iguana on the ivory surface.
