Fig Tree Kernel

From the white matter of the core of fig branches, the artisan with patience and a steady hand, creates beautiful and delicate figurines typical of the Azores. The oldest works of Euclides Rosa, are exposed at the Museum of Horta. Nowadays, the pieces made of the fig tree kernel include floral motifs, mills or sailing boats.
