LARGE SOUTH AMERICAN LACQUERED FLASK

Length 42 cm ( 16.5 in )

The large flask is of horn and lacquered gourd with a traditional impasto foliate design. The resin from the mopa mopa tree is heated and coloured before being kneaded and moulded or cut into the required design which is then pressed on to the underlying surface. This method of pasto decoration comes from the workshops in Nueva Granada in present day Colombia.
