365 Day Photo Challenge – Day 182

An engraved leaf – how amazing!

This is a piece of art created by Antonio Muñoz. He is an artist who sells his wares at the market located in El Valle, Panama. His work is beautiful! The engraving, in the above photo, has been done on a hardened leaf!!

About seven months ago, he and his family were walking along the El Palmar beach at the same time I was there watching surf lessons. I happened to take a photo of his son, which I posted on Day 20 of this blog. When we chatted with him and his wife, he told us that he was an artist, and that he makes jewellery to sell at the market in El Valle. So today I took a framed copy of the photo up to him at the market and gave it to him as a gift. He loved it, and as a thank you gift he gave me some of his handmade jewellery :-)! It’s beautiful and I wore some of it this evening when we went out for dinner. You can see some of the images below. Antonio also carves designs in stones, wood and coconut shells making amazing and unique pieces of jewellery. He is very talented!! 

Necklace – love it!
