Appearing in low relief, feline features distinguish this handsome vessel. Walter Jose Acosta takes his inspiration from Peru's ancient Cupisnique culture, identified by archeologist Rafael Larco Hoyle in the 1940s. Crafted by hand in ceramic, the vase reveals an artistic style shared with the Chavin culture.

Amazing what this man can do

I have bought as an anniversary gift two beautiful vases from this greatly gifted artist and they were a great success. My husband loves precolombine ceramics and he was delighted to see the quality and beauty of the pieces. For sure I will buy pieces again from this artisan, so happy I bought them!

I received ""Childbirth,"" and the artistry was truly stunning! The detail is exquisite on such a small sculpture. I always prefer sculptures which reveal a lot to touch, and this is one of those. It is rich with emotion.
