The studio of Wilfrido Prieto in el Paují

 


vista parcial del pueblo del Paují

The Paují, is a community located at 80 km. from Santa Elena de Uairén. The road heading towards this settlement is divided into two sections, the first is paved and in good condition and the other half is unpaved and is significantly deteriorated, to the point where there are even some fallen bridges on certain routes. This is why in order to arrive there, a vehicle with double traction is your best choice.  It is a Creole community, not an Indian one, that lives freely in these lands in the south of Venezuela where tranquillity is their best neighbor. 

TAKAMAJAKA.. ARTESANÍA E INGENIO EN EL PAUJÍ

 .


The takamajaka is a product invented in the Paují using tools fabricated by the ingenuity of its creators.  The Takamajaka is in short, a pleasant-smelling incense of very good quality which has reached the national market. 

We had the opportunity to talk with its creator, a Brazilian who chose to live in this area, known as "Paulista Carballo", who in the company of his wife "Isabel Sanabria" and other helpers, have kept this domestic business moving forward.  They have even set up old auto parts which now serve as tools to manufacture these incense.  So don’t forget when visiting the Paují to pass buy and check out these and other products also made here.

We also spent some time with Wilfrido Prieto and his wife Rosa Elena, who make unique crafts.  Wilfredo is a master  working with the stone of the Gran Sabana, which he manages to polish and sculpt it in an impressive manner.  He also carves wood with great skill.  In turn, his wife decorates bags and shirts with distinctive traits of the area.  In conclusion, the Paují is a community filled with highly skilled craftsmen who make a living from tourism, although many times they go unrecognized..
