Kuripe – Hummingbird Marajá
Marajá is sometimes called black bamboo although it actually is from the family of palm trees. Its bark is full of spines and it is quite hard to find in the forest. It is harder than bambu and as such gives more pressure to your application and is more durable. Because of the difficulty of finding the material they are limited edition and we only have them when the maker happens to receive or find some.
This model is finely decorated with resin in a beija flor or hummingbird design. From north to south America indigenous peoples see the humming bird as a sacred messenger of the plant medicine. He is said to bring spiritual and physical healing to those wh call upon him.
There may be slight varieties from batch to batch since this is a hand crafted product.
