WHAT IS AN HIGUERA? Simply put, an higuera is a calabash, more commonly referred to as a gourd. The higuera tree of Puerto Rico bears a hard shelled fruit which has been crafted into vessels, musical instruments and ceremonial objects for centuries. Their pulp holds moisture and the large versions may weigh as much as 15 pounds when harvested. When dry the shell can last indefinitely.
Medium: acrylic gouache
