This beautiful bule has been crafted by Nahuatl artisans from northern Hidalgo. Supported and protected by a bejuco structure, which also helps to carry it arround with a cord.
Bule or guaje, as it is known in México, is a calabash tree (Lagenaria siceraria), also known as the bottle gourd. The fruit is dried and carved hollow to create a container to carry water around like a canteen.
