With this handmade, artistic glass piece, Fernando Llort captures Salvadoran identity, which we have taken as a part of our national iconography.
Fernando Llort was one of the most important and iconic artists in the history of El Salvador. Besides from being a painter, sculptor, muralist and composer, very unique in his style, Llort was a great art promoter since his activities inspired the local handicraft movement as he started the first local workshop, called the Semilla de Dios (Seed of God). This was incorporated as a cooperative, providing employment for people to learn and develop their skills.
Through "Colored Bird", the artist tries to recreate nature at his own interpretation, characterized by his lines and simple elements that express harmony and peace in which he believed.
This figurine is handmade by a skilled team of glass artisans, led by Margarita Llort, glass art expert, who with all her expertise captured the beautiful designs of Fernando Llort on to the glass.
With the purchase of “Bird in colors” you collaborate with Fernando Llort´s Foundation that carries out projects that improve community and psicosocial wellness through art, within El Salvador, promoting individual and collective creativity. Limited edition piece
