Details

Alessandra Foletti combines millenary Lenca customs and traditions of Honduras for the design of this ceramic sculpture. Shaped like an iguana, the metate (grinding stone) is crafted by hand by masterful Lenca ceramists eager to preserve their millenary art. Zealous of their unique techniques, they wish to keep secret how they create the black motifs on the beige surface.

Absolutely beautiful necklace. I could feel the love that went into it when I wore it. The packaging was even touching- loved the worry doll included. Will be buying more for gifts- thanks so much. Lori
