A thoroughly unique attraction on Curacao's east side, Serena's Art Factory—established by German expat artist Serena Janet Israel—produces and sells handmade, hand-crafted artwork while offering workshops and tours for visitors.
The factory's best-known creations are the Chichis®, Israel's version of a well-known Caribbean character, a voluptuous and vivacious "big sister" (Chichi, in Papiamentu).
