Slingshot. Hondas or Catapults

“Slingshots are made to serve specific purpose. They are genuine functional products. As authentic works of folk art, slingshots have irresistible charm. These small artifacts are created in apparent anonymity by their owners, and they are treated as valued personal items. Their beauty derives from this intimate relationship, their use and the effect of time.”

The Folk Art of Guatemala, Volume Two: Slingshots. Tony Pasinski, 1997
