"Carved Corozo Box"
Round carved corozo nut box, a hard seed with a very fine grain called vegetable ivory, allowing a sculpture of great finesse. These objects were often the work of companions depositing them as proof of their know-how in order to become master in their art, after a long period of learning. Round box made of two parts, with openwork lid. Sculpted decor representing musical instruments, foliage and scrolls, and a pierced heart with a sword on the reverse.
