Detailed with hand-painted artistry, a golden wreath crowns the design of this jewelry storage chest that camouflages as an accent table. It features a shelf and drawer, and the lid reveals six compartments and a mirror. Antonio Rojas creates a crackled effect for a design reminiscent of Peru's Colonial era. The tall jewelry armoire is masterfully carved from pinewood featuring florid buds on the legs.
Antonio Rojas has received 11 microcredit loans with 0% interest from Kiva and Novica, the first for $300 and the most recent for $1100. Proceeds were used to stock up on materials to craft his products, and also to invest in tools for his workshop.
This artist uses traditional techniques handed down through the generations and/or creates culturally significant items, helping keep these traditions alive.
