Gourd decorative jar, 'Boy Meets Girl' (Peru)

Teodolinda Seguil of Peru carves a story of boy meets girl into this gourd decorative container. Each of the six panels is a different scene, with the scene's title carved in Spanish. First, we meet Luz, a young woman, as she cooks a delicious meal and watches over her grazing flock. Carlos sees her and works up the courage to meet her. Before long, they get married.
