Handicrafts in Los Mochis - Bules"Bules" are pumpkin-shaped fruits with a wide base and an elongated end. Local artisans recreate scenes on the surface of the fruit using a pre-Colombian technique where the surface is scratched, marked and polished with the use of flint, then engraved using a hot wand. In some cases the piece is incrusted with shells, gold leaf, or precious stones. The bule is treated with chemicals to preserve the wood, to avoid the environment, bugs, and germs from harming it. It is strengthened by a wood petrifaction process that extends its longevity, with tests proving that a piece can last from 60 to 500 years.
