Coco Nut Shell Art -1110
Artist: Bernadette Wolf
Description: Artworks on empty coconut shells depicting various cultural scenes and indigenous people of the Philippines.
Bao or coconut shells have many uses. Once emptied out of their juice and meat, they are usually repurposed into coin banks, soup bowls, plant holders, and other items that could suit their owners' needs.
But in the hands of a visual artist like Bernadette Solina Wolf, they become canvasses for the majestic depiction of Philippine culture particularly its indigenous people.
