Boruca Indigenous Art & Gallery is the first ever art space and gallery in Coco Beach to exhibit the beautiful artisanry from our home village of Boruca, a small indigenous reserve in the southern part of Costa Rica. We are, Domingo Rojas, an artist from the Borucan reserve and a large family of artists, painters, sculptors, and weavers, and Graceann Barrett, from New York. We are now living in Coco and want to share the traditional arts of our indigenous culture with this beautiful beach community. We feature many other of the talented artists from Boruca who visit Coco Beach to exhibit their work and help to support the greater economy of our home town. We bring a wealth of information regarding the art, culture and environmental protection of the Borucan people. Our primary works of art are elaborated from balsa wood into the intricate Little Devil or environmental masks, always representing the flora and fauna native to Costa Rica, and always in recognition of the legacy left behind by the Borucan ancestors. Rojas Bros invites innovative art utilizing new techniques and styles. We also offer traditional weaving using natural cotton fibers and dyes made by the Borucan women, and various pieces of jewelry and other crafts that demonstrate the Borucan skills as artisans. Come visit the Rojas Bros. Boruca Indigenous Art & Gallery! On the second floor of the beautiful beach-front bar and restaurant, TikiCoco Place. less
