Kuripe – Beija Flor
The Beija Flor is the hummingbird, the tiny bird that brings joy and happiness wherever it goes. It is considered a messenger bird of spiritual healing by the indigenous people. This simple but nicely finished kuripe represents that message of joy and healing.
This kuripe was crafted using bamboo and resin. The beak is crafted from a palm seed of the forest.
There may be slight varieties from batch to batch since this is a hand crafted product.
This model was made by our handicrafts experts at the Tete Pawã arts and crafts studio. They are located in the upper Juruá region of Marechal Thaumaturgo municipality, way up on the Amazon. The only way to get there is a two day boat journey or with a four seater airplane. They have been our close partners since 2014, always delivering state of the art handicrafts and their excellent Kuntanawa Rapés.
