Welcome to the Coconutorium
The quasi-folk art of coconut carving is as universal as tropical locales with coconut palms. Perhaps there's a monkey, pirate, or tribal coconut "head" in your attic, brought home long ago as a souvenir. Practical coconut items include lamps, coin banks, chimes, ashtrays, purses, bird houses, and even hula dancers' bras. Every coconut is different!
Dan Van Allen, wood-working artist extraordinaire in Baltimore, MD USA, has gathered coconut sculpture for many years. The Coconutorium highlights his collection and pays tribute to the world's coconut carvers. Now, click the blue "contents" button or follow the monkey.
