About this item: Ana Maria Gonzalez finds inspiration in Mexico's lotería (bingo) for the design of this jewelry box. Featuring two drawers and a compartment under the lid, the box is adorned with decoupage. The traditional lotería includes 54 different images and numbers, and it is believed to have been brought to Mexico in 1769, when it was reserved for the upper classes. Eventually it became widely played by everyone, and is now a trademark at traditional fairs as well as in homes and schools. - Hand-crafted item -- color, size and/or motif may vary slightly About our Artist: Mexico's Ana Maria Gonzalez says, 'For as long as I can remember, I've been around arts and crafts. My whole family produced something and when we'd visit our relatives, my cousins and I would make something for fun. After I married, my husband and I created various kinds of handicrafts, but I felt a need to make something. I began making decorative boxes, painted by hand with different finishes. Today I create boxes with antique motifs.'
