"Believe it or not, some archeologists have been fooled by my work! That's because of the aging process I use with my pieces."

"Beautiful conversation piece"

I bought this as a gift for myself to always remember the birth of my daughter and the beauty of delivering with a midwife. Having this piece in my home creates an opportunity to share this history and my connection to the story it tells.

"Stunning replica"

This work is of the highest quality, a detailed reproduction of Nasca form and iconography unmatched not only in its aesthetic quality but also as a tool for the close-up study of typified Nasca figural representation.

"Phantastic work!"

My warmest Thanks to Walter Jose Acosta for this incredible and wonderful piece of art! Through my work as a film director, I came into contact with Nazca culture and was immediately enchanted and excited. These vessels are truly empathetic and authentically designed replica that resurrect this extinct culture. Many thanks to Walter for this time travel!

"Amazing Craftsmanship"

I just returned from my second trip to Peru, where I saw hundreds of original Moche artifacts in museums, including the one this is based on. I was looking for a piece like this to bring back, as I love Moche work, but didn t find anything I liked. I saw Mr. Acosta s work on Novica and was immediately enthralled. I ordered this piece plus the Nazca whale ceramic. They both are beautiful and so much like the originals! I will definitely buy more of his work in the future.
