Mopa Mopa
Often relegated to the handicraft category of souvenir shopping, works by locals in any destination can be seen as decorative arts instead of simply elevated keepsakes. This gallery in Oranjestad showcases spectacular one-of-a-kind pieces lovingly crafted in the traditional Mopa Mopa and Barniz de Pasto styles. The resin-based lacquering techniques use vegetable dyes and painting to enhance wooden carved figures. The result is that each item is distinctly unique. Artisans are on hand to answer questions and demonstrate their intricate work.
