With more than 700 bird species, Guatemala is a popular birding destination. Folk artists in Antigua Guatemala, a volcano-ringed highlands town, create this rustic tin tree and fill it with 18 brightly hand-painted clay birds, inspired by the colorful parrots, mockingbirds, and warblers that are native to the country. Colors may vary in each handcrafted bird. Loop on back for hanging.


Handcrafted in Guatemala. 13"W x 18"H x 3"D. Comes ready to hang.


La Antigua Guatemala, in the country’s central highlands, is famous for its baroque architecture, colonial churches, and the three volcanoes that surround the town. It was called Santiago de los Caballeros when it was founded, and served as the country’s capital city until a massive 1773 earthquake left more than 3,000 buildings in ruins and the government reestablished the capital thirty miles away in present-day Guatemala City. Today, the former capital is known as La Antigua Guatemala, or Old Guatemala, although most people simply call it Antigua.


Antigua is known for its elaborate Holy Week celebrations. They include large processions along cobblestoned streets that are covered with incredibly ornate “carpets” made out of colored sawdust, flower petals, and sand. Hundreds of men in purple robes carry floats, or andas, bearing huge statues of Christ and other saints.

Beautiful!

I received the nesting tree wall art for Christmas and I just love it! It is very unique and looks great hanging on the wall. The variety of colorful birds make it an interesting conversation piece. I would highly recommend it.
