Butterfly Insect Calabash Christmas tree ornament and hand rattle

These unique Christmas tree ornaments and rattles are made from calabash tree pods (gourds) by native artisans from the Ampiyacu River region of the Peruvian Amazon.  This rattle features the figure of a butterfly - one of many species found in the Amazon and throughout the world which are key pollinators for thousands of plants.  

This rattle has a chambira palm fiber chord allows it to be hung from a Christmas tree.  The beads inside also make it a great rattle that fits in the palm of your hand.

Please remember that the artisan carves these rattles one at a time so the exact design of the animal and shape of the calabash pod may vary from the photo shown of this model.
