Rocky Point arts and crafts are all the work of indigenous artisans. The chief feature of these exquisite pieces is the way that shells of local marine life and sea snails are used to capture the beauty of the local surroundings.
There are also many items made of other materials, such as ceramic and metal as well as jewelry and carved wooden figures that capture the indigenous wildlife of this area in the form of dolphins, lambs, turtles, and many other animals.
However, it is from the Pápagos that the area’s legendary art forms come. These ancient inhabitants of the region today still produce carved wooden figures and pieces of rustic craftsmanship in clay, stone, choya wood, and cow dung.
Rocky Point basketry known as coritas, made from materials collected by local women from the desert plants palmillo and torote, are coveted the world over.
Decorated with figures representing symbols related to the mythical worldview of the O'otham ancestral culture, these baskets are an important source of income for the women of these communities.
