Walter Jose Acosta takes his inspiration from Peru's vast archaeological heritage, replicating the work of the ancestors. This intriguing decorative vessel reinterprets a whistle from the Chancay people.

"This work of art is pure joy to me!"

I am thrilled to have received the Ancient Peruvian Chancay whistle made by Walter Jose Acosta! It was tenderly wrapped and had a beautiful little ornament attached to the ribbon. Such care and artistry was taken, and I am profoundly grateful. I have shared photos of it on my facebook page, and will continue to support and promote his work! Thank you! Sharon
