We are in love with this forgiveness handcrafted wooden mask. Created by artisans from indigenous communities in Colombia while portraying powerful thoughts onto their material creations. This wall decor art is beautiful, unique, and full of meaning.
This design captures the life of the Kamentsa indigenous people of Colombia, their culture, traditions, and beliefs.
The expressions and facial gestures represent the feelings of the community during their “Big Day” or Carnival of Forgiveness. This day marks the beginning of the year, and a moment of celebration, to give thanks for all the gifts given by Mother Earth. During this celebration people dance, sing, play musical instruments, share food and wear their traditional clothes.
The colors represent their feelings and emotions, their happiness and joy, and. The sacred patterns embody the visions they have when doing their sacred ceremonies with their traditional medicine.
Handmade with love,

Kamentsa Indigenous Community, Colombia Artist Partner – Latido
At Latido (‘heartbeat’ in Spanish) you will find unique handmade pieces that hold a deep intention and carry the ancestral wisdom of the indigenous communities in Colombia, South America. They want to connect you directly with the artists and bring to you a piece of art that will resonate with your soul.
It is all about the connection and same as we believe in the power of praying, we believe in the power of creative intention. The artisans when they’re creating these unique pieces are thinking about a particular issue, a particular thought… it might be fertility- something that worries us so much too, it might be Nature, it might be happiness or family relationships. Through their hands and their ancestral wisdom, those pieces are energetically supercharged, and now all that is yours. There is a deeper meaning to life and what surrounds us.
Share the goodness!
