In the middle of the rainforest, a majestic hummingbird rests surrounded by orchids. With confidence and splendor, serenity fills the air. This standing sculpture is the creation of artist Marcos Rojas Morales in collaboration with carver Leonel Gomez Morales from the indigenous community of Boruca, Costa Rica. Material: balsa wood & acrylic.
“I was fortunate to study traditional mask-making under Don Ismael, the great teacher. In the mid-1990s after seeing how the new colorful masks were growing in popularity, I taught myself how to paint.” Marcos Rojas Morales
