Materials: Recycled aluminum bomb remnants
Noteworthy: These artisans in Ban Naphia located in the Xieng Khuang Province who source aluminum from airplane parts and bombs dropped throughout Laos during the Vietnam War in the 1960s. War and persistent air raids in the 1960s left the countryside littered with bomb and metal shrapnel. Today, there are approximately 13 families producing items from war and non-war scrap aluminum. The remnants of this legacy have been transformed into emblems of peace.
