Maquilishuat Tree, Handmade Collective Glass Art Figure



In 1939, the maquilishuat was declared El Salvador’s national tree. Measuring up to 20 meters in height, it blooms during the dry season between the months of February and April, with remarkable bright pink flowers, which it sheds every year.


This piece by Margarita Llort celebrates the maquilishuat tree, and is sure to find a place in any space or office. Handmade by Salvadoran artisans specialized in glass art, the piece speaks for itself through its bright colors and striking textures. 


El Salvador’s flora and fauna are the focus of Margarita Llort’s VitroNATURA collection, highlighting through intense colors and mystifying textures the features of El Salvador´s vivid wildlife. Margarita Llort’s pieces elegantly capture the often forgotten natural landscape of the unexpectedly diverse Central American country. 


Help protect El Salvador´s biodiversity. When you purchase a piece from the VitroNATURA collection 25% of the proceeds go to SalvaNATURA Fundacion Ecologica, a not-for-profit organization devoted to preserving El Salvador´s natural habitat and animal diversity. Additionally, Vitrales by Margarita Llort recycles and upcycles whenever possible, implementing a “Zero Waste” approach to production. All of the left-over glass from large projects is creatively used in new items. Rest assured that every purchase is kind to our planet.
