Painted Cross Ornament - El Salvador

Painted Cross Ornament - El Salvador


Handmade in El Salvador | $11.00 each, sold separately

This painted pine wood cross ornament comes from artisans working with the cooperative La Semilla de Dios, crafting wooden items painted in the famous La Palma folk art style. Founded by internationally known Salvadoran artist Fernando Llort, the cooperative paints in the simple, joyful, colorful folk art style for which Llort’s work is known. Artists draw the designs, often from memory and occasionally using stencils. Women paint the pieces by hand, a time-consuming process that requires significant concentration.

Approx. 3.5" L x 2" W. Not a toy; intended for decoration only.
