“Costa Rica’s traditional oxcarts are recognized by UNESCO as a precious cultural patrimony of humanity. Graced by intricate designs of kaleidoscopic beauty, they are the most iconic graphic elements of our heritage. I am proud that the roots of this art form can be traced to my hometown, the community of Sarchí (30 minutes away from El Silencio). I learned the technique from my grandparents and I am honored to share this emblematic art form with our guests. Teaching how to paint a memento of an oxcart wheel fills me with pride.”
