Morros are a gourd like fruit that comes from a tropical tree, rather then a vine. I encountered these dried Morros of different sizes etched and carved into beautiful art forms by the locals. The Indians in the old days would dry them and use them as water containers and cups or bowls. Also called Jicara- Drinking bowl, Gourd, Calabash. I can get these cheap from the Indians who make them. I’ve also seen them made into purses by putting 2 together with a zipper. Rip a barter session, anyone?
I have many shark jaws that I cleaned and dried. I get them from the local shark fishermen. The fins are sold for a high price to the Japanese and most the meat is sold here in Mexico as Filet used often at fish taco stands. Let me know if you want a pair & we’ll work something out.
This will be the first of many barter entries:
My Friend Miguel A.K.A. “El Socio” has been carving wood figures and totems his whole life. Basically if you haven’t seen his totems , you haven’t been to Baja California Sur. He has probably carved into the thousands of pieces. You never know what figure or face he is going to carve out of his creative mind. Check here periodically to see his new works and if you want one let us know and we will plan accordingly! As he is very famous and can’t make enough of his totems for the demand! Bring on the trades, let’s deal!
