The designs on each bowl represent abstractions of insect and animals found in the Kichwa and Shiwiar villages, or plant motifs that are also abstracted, no two are alike. They are painted with brushes made from human hair and are 2-3 strands each. The shine you see on the pots comes from a tree sap that is applied to the form while it is still hot. The indigenous groups who made these pieces are from the Ecuadorian Amazon region, they are the Kichwa and Shiwiar.
