HO! HO! HO! says Santa as he shows off his tall hat! A new style of Santa created by Rodolfo and Lizzet Hirtado in Cochas Chico, Peru. First comes the drying, cleaning and dying of the gourds. An artist then draws each and every ornament with a pencil to match the shape and design. Others then finely carve these intricate gourds with simple hand chisels, and finely the details are burned. Sizes, Santa design and colors will vary as nature and the artist intended.
