Large Wooden Dolphin Puzzle Box
This handsome dolphin swims along in a seven-piece wooden puzzle with three hidden compartments. This puzzle box measures 3.25" high, 7.5" wide, and 2.5" deep and is made from scraps of mahogany and granadillo wood.
This fair trade puzzle box is handmade in Guatemala by the artisan group, Artesa. Artesa is made up of four craftsmen who work in Santiago Atitlán. Using their skills, they create traditionally carved wooden ornaments, puzzle boxes, wine holders, and an array of decorative wood pieces. Their intricate designs are used from leftover pieces of mahogany, teak, ebony, cypress and other local woods from merchants and carpenters in the community. In addition to their own craft they also work with several young men from Santiago to help them continue their schooling.
