Bark Animal 004

Bark/Wild Seeds Animal Collection: Deer and Turtles

A particular group of the Cabécar tribe in Costa Rica’s Talamanca mountain range are making collectible bark animal crafts from hand made fiber known as mastate. Using natural adornments such as seeds, shells, bamboo, copra fiber, palm and other plants derivatives, each bark animal is hand stitched and hand painted with natural plant dyes, as are the pictorial collages.  The delightful style, primitive or folk-like craft of bark animal art, appeals to all who see them. Each piece is one-of-a-kind, creating a wonderful collection of indigenous art while helping a tribal people exist in their natural territory.

Within this 3 piece set are one small framed mastate collage (with naturally dyed areas), a deer and two large local seed turtle creations – all references to Talamanca wildlife.

  • Tribe: Cabécar
  • Location: Talamanca Mtns., Costa Rica
  • Size: each piece varies – typically animals approx. 6″ x 5″ and collages approx. 4″ x 6″
