Hand-Carved Artisan Christmas Ornament Southwest Adobe House in Gourd
These magnificent hand-carved Christmas ornaments were created by New Mexico artists Neal and Ophelia Crosier, a husband and wife artistic team who work side by side in their studio to craft their extraordinary pieces. Each element of these ornaments is meticulously hand-carved, with beautiful detailing.
The lovely little adobe house within the gourd is carved from pieces of New Mexico cottonwood tree bark which the artists gather from the surrounding outdoors and then carve. The unique texture of the cottonwood bark remarkably resembles the appearance of the rugged cliffs and bluffs of New Mexico, resulting in a truly remarkable one-of-a-kind piece of art.
- Wonderful attention to details, including an intricately-crafted Native American rug, still on the loom, and a red chile ristra hung near the front door.
- Signed on the bottom side by the artist
- Includes a black cord hanger
