Original Dugout canoes from the
Amazon Rainforest
Item 1505

These are working canoes used by fishermen along the Amazon River and its tributaries. These canoes are usually 3.5 to 4 meters long and made from  a solid piece of marupa wood, Simarouba amara. They should have a dark natural stain and show good craftsmanship with the wood carved thin with a good line. Some repairs are expected, but shouldn't detract from the overall look. more about dugout canoes...
