He/she has so many colours and stands tall as you walk around the living and is a discussion piece for visitors. They are amazed at the craftmanship and different type of gems, colour,and stones used to make him.

Profound Impact

Preserving Traditions

Preserving Traditions

"I learned to carve stone from a friend. In turn, I have taught my son and many of my workers the art of stone carving. When one of my artisans leaves to start a workshop of their own, I feel great pride. It means that the stone art of Peru will live on. Stone carving records the history of Peru and the Andes. Even though we now use machinery to bring our hand drawings to life... the stories the stones tell and the motifs we incorporate have been with us since pre-Inca times."
