Add this shop to my favorites. Very pretty coconut entirely and finely carved, decorated with heads of characters, certainly Indians or natives of America, birds holding a garland plant, as well as flowers and foliage, working sailor or convict perhaps cayenne, of the nineteenth century. This coconut is in good condition. A note: breaks and gaps in the head of the character of the coconut, slits (red arrows), wear time.
The coconut as well as the corozo was worked by the sailors or also by convicts. The latter worked to pass the time but also and especially to make a little money to improve their lives. Can also be attributed to sailors on their long journeys. These objects in coconut or corozo are fine examples of folk art. 8 cm x 8 cm length: approx.
