Story Behind the Art:
As the son of a lumberjack, Patricio Coroy remembers the consequences of extreme deforestation. 'I took a year course on organic farming and sustainable development that was taught in my village, and together we formed the Rabbit project. To the Maya, the rabbit represents abundance and prosperity. We began to use the smaller branches and trunks to create works of art, candleholders and trays to be able to use the whole tree. In 2002, this forest project won an award from the World Bank and the Soros Foundation of Guatemala.'

If you are looking for a small decorative tray for change, or to hold a couple of bar tools (such as a muddling spoon and corkscrew), then this is a workable size. We use our on the bar for bar accessories, however it is too small for a 'serving tray,' unless you serve one cordial glass at a time! Definitely a disappointment in size, however otherwise it is a nice tray.Read More
