Home Accessories are the “finishing touch” quite often when decorating. Adding exquisite art and/or collectibles with ethnic flavor adds color, interest and conversation pieces to your living spaces – in other words, it makes where you live interesting and flavorful. Your home should reflect who you are, so take that into consideration when purchasing any sort of art or collectible to display.
The great thing about decorating in a Bohemian or Eclectic design aesthetic is that there are really no rules – just add whatever you love to the space, especially if it is colorful and fun! Bark Paintings are exceptional art pieces that are very unique and handmade. Papel Amate, or painted bark paper, is an art form with clear pre-Hispanic origins. The handmade paper was originally considered a specialty of the village shaman and used only for special rituals. Decades later, the Otomi of Puebla began using bark paper as a canvas for painting. Typically, artisans will craft the paper from fig or mulberry tree bark, then sell or trade the homemade paper to other indigenous groups for decoration.
At the other end of the financial investment spectrum, Painted Clay Art from Mexico, is great fun to add to your home. Keeping with the deep artistic traditions of their Aztec ancestors, the Nahua Indians of Southern Mexico continue to produce these wonderful hand-painted clay boxes, one-of-a-kind plates, and whimsical artwork pieces for the walls of your home. The detail is outstanding, in most cases depicting timeless Nahua village life including the direct experiences of the artisans who produce the work. No serious folk art collection is complete without one of these colorful pieces of simplistic art!
