Details

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.

Arrived in excellent condition. Colors and appearance exactly as pictured. My friend who was the recipient was excited to receive and cherishes the gift as a reminder of our last trip to Peru.

"Not like the photograph"

I like this piece, however mine is not painted as in the photograph, and that is very disappointing. I wonder if something happened to my piece, because the picture is very misleading.
