Details

Depicted in the rotund shapes favored by Gerasimo Sosa, the Holy Family appears in ceramic, shaped by hand. Mary is dressed in her customary blue, with a dark cloak and white veil. Joseph wears a striped poncho and hat in the style of Peruvian country people. Baby Jesus is swaddled in white — a symbol of purity — and rests in a manger filled with hay. The master artisan gives the figurines beautifully expressive faces.

He works in ceramic in the classic style of Chulucanas, using techniques that derive from the ancient Vicus culture. The artisan shapes the figures by hand, fires them, then applies slip glazes for color. When they dry, he burnishes the pieces with a stone. He then covers the colored areas with slip and fires the pieces a second time in a reduction kiln using mango leaves. The smoke results in the black areas while the protected areas preserve their original color.

This is a fantastic piece of art and I love it. I hope you put more on this website in the bigger Chulacana people. They packaging was the best I have seen. I have bought other pieces that were broken when I received them.
