Hand Carved Panama Tagua Nut 

Handcrafted by indigenous Wounaan artisans

Young boys love these frog eating snake carvings. 

These Hand Made Tagua Nut carvings are from Panama. They are painted with fine inks. 

Throughout Panama, Ecuador, and other areas of the world native artists create beautiful works of art from the tagua nut.  The tagua palm is known for producing its renewable nut and it is known as vegetable ivory. The nuts, when dried are carved into beautiful ivory-like sculptures. The durability of the tagua and its similarity to animal ivory has been known for a long time. The local artists sometimes leave them in their natural off-white color and sometimes paint them with fine inks or natural dyes. Regardless, they are always beautiful. 

The Wounaan people are master artisans from the Darien-Choco region of Panama. The Wounaan artisans carve the tagua with hand tools and polish the tagua with a series of fine abrasives bringing them to a beautiful shine. 

I enjoy painting and repairing tagua when I have time.  Repaired tagua carvings go in my Hospital collection.  It is a great hobby.
