The Xumuapan fruit bowl evokes the fruit and forest offering that the jungles of the southern zone of Veracruz make to locals and strangers. This piece is made up of a quadrangular pyramid made of cocuite wood and polished with beeswax by hand, in which the expert wood carving group Agua y Monte has been in charge of representing the guardians of the area, the volcano San Martin and the Cerro de Santa Martha. To crown this piece at the top, a traditional basket made and woven in semi-hard vines from the region's plains, Bertoldo Gómez and Esteban Martínez Jiménez from the municipality of Zaragoza and from the town of Coacotla in the municipality of Cosoleacaque are the ones who have entrusted that this technique and knowledge survive. For several generations in their workshops they have been in charge of collecting and cleaning the material and patiently letting it dry until reaching the exact resistance to create a container in which the fruits that this rich region of our country offers to the world will be placed as tributes.
