A character of extreme importance to the ancient Inca , the chasqui was a messenger who also took care of a community's logistics. Chasquis were responsible of informing the emperors of possible uprisings or enemies approaching. Angel Franco details the image of a chasqui for this exquisite decorative vase. A llama stands proud on the other side of the vase’s belly as Franco works with galvanized bronze and copper.

So much fun to hang a little sun that features such great design (love the squareness) and intricacy! Absolutely beautiful and looks great on our putty colored wall on top of a framed painting. Thank you!

Your Purchase Makes a Difference!

"Metal work has been part of Peruvian culture since before the Incas. It is an inheritance that my father taught me and I have taught my children. In our workshop, we make many replicas of Inca and traditional Peruvian art. We use brass, copper and silver like our ancestors did. This keeps our culture alive."

Angel still supports most of his family. He provides for his own wife and the wife of his eldest son. He pays for the education of his children. His Novica sales enable him to do so, providing a steady source of income for the family.

Angel Franco has received 5 microcredit loans with 0% interest from Kiva and Novica, the first for $600 and the most recent for $2000. Proceeds were used to invest in a bulk purchase of bronze and copper for his metalwork.

Angel has four children. His eldest son is unable to pay for the education of his two daughters. Angel provides for his granddaughters' education.
