Our Traditional and Contemporary Art and Artisan work are a Beautiful Expression of the People of Puerto Rico!

 

Support what Our Country Produces.

 

Spirit and Truth...

Our Elders teach that Spirit and Truth are the Manifestation of the Creator.

All Creation contains the 'visible' and the 'invisible'... therefore, all works possess this Mystery.

These beautiful works reflect the Spirit and Truth that lies inside the Soul of the Artisan / Artist of Boriké.

It is when these qualities are present that the True Beauty of the Creation is revealed.

 

See our hand-painted “higüeras” (gourds) and “cibas” (stones) that express the beauty of the panoramic mountains of Puerto Rico.

We offer unique works of art.  Color, dimension and weight will vary.
