Art Shopping


I am looking for some very specific art. A friend once brought home from Belize (not sure where) some mahogany cabinet doors. On the front they were carved with a coral reef and painted with brightly coloured fish, corals, etc.

Anyone know where I could find something like this? We are staying in San Pedro at Landings Tres Cocos in December. Just wondering if there's an artist that I may have to "pre-order" these from :)

I'd check out Orange Gifts, which is in Cayo. http://www.orangegifts.com/ They are famous for their wood work.

I don't recall seeing any work like this on Ambergris Caye. There are many galleries and wood workers here. I'd suggest bringing along a photo of the cabinet with you. Even if you can't find the actual artist, you may find someone who can reproduce it, or do something even better.
