The inspiration for the designs on these beautiful pots comes from the art of the Maroon Culture in Suriname. The exquisite Art of Woodcarving called Tembe.
The symbols that are used by the Maroon woodcarvers, are to express messages of love, gratitude and respect.
These Terracotta Pots are individually hand painted and each pot is a unique design. No two pots are the same.
The Hamaka symbol, "Hamaka Shield",is referred to in many of the designs as a message for protection.
