Seed Beaded Octopus Gift or Christmas Ornament. Made in Guatemala.
This style is made by the more experienced artists in order to make the arms retain their shape as shown when hanging yet flexible to go out flat when sitting on a shelf.
Unlike weaving, which has been practiced in Guatemala since pre-Colombian times, bead work is a relatively new artisan craft in Guatemala.
