Details

A captive with hands tied behind his back is guarded by a cat-like personage with human arms and legs. Or perhaps the creature is comforting him. Walter Jose Acosta creates a ceremonial vessel in the style of Peru's pre-Inca Moche people. This enigmatic replica of an ancient huaco, or clay vessel is meticulously crafted of burnished terracotta and painted by hand.

An amazing item! The quality of workmanship is obvious from the moment you hold it. You can literally see the love and dedication put into creating it. Other than not having any dirt on it, this reproduction looks just like an authentic artifact. I could not be happier with it my purchase. Its a wonderful addition to my collection.
