Details

Standing with open arms, two large cuchimilcos proudly represent Peru's Chancay culture that flourished from 1200 to 1470 A.D. Their welcoming posture is believed to keep bad energies at bay. They are always found in pairs featuring a man and a woman, symbolic of divine duality, a belief held by all pre-Hispanic cultures. Walter Jose Acosta masters ceramic techniques as he crafts each statuette by hand. He expertly replicates the artistic stylizations of the Chancay culture, featuring a large head and small arms extended upwards, resembling wings. The figures are nude except for masks, headdresses and bracelets.

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.
