Guatemalan Entrepreneurship: Avocado seed masks

Avocado Seed Mask by Rudy Girón

Often enough I am sharing with you examples how ingenious and creative Guatemalans are when confronted with adversity or simply day-to-day life little issues. Well, I have decided to inaugurate the Guatemalan Entrepreneurship category with these masks created from dried avocado seeds. Many people just throw away the avocado seeds while other “see” you can make something artistic and fulfilling with them. And what better place than Antigua Guatemala, home to the panzas verdes (green bellies) which is the nickname given to the antigüeños for eating so many avocados. 😉

That’s what I call Guatemalan Entrepreneurship, don’t you agree?

    Very creative, and fine exaples of guate-ingenuity.  Also good for the visitors who can’t fit another jaguar mask in the carry-on bag (like me).  ;D

    • Eric, you know what to look for on your next trip during the dry season. 😉

    Very creative, I love the distinctive facial expression on each mask.

    • That’s amazing if you consider the seeds are about 1″ to 1.5″ in diameter.
