Melvin Alexander Bodden
Roatan's Local Wood Carving Artist
Where in Roatan can you find Palanca?...
You won't see Palanca in a fancy museum no, his museum is the great outdoors. Look for a small house in a grassy field in Sandy Bay decorated with his own paintings! Just pull up along the road, meet Melvin, have a little chat, and buy a carving for your place. He is a favorite among island visitors and an award winner in the municipality of Coxen Hole. Roatan wood is his claim to fame!
