I don't think I can add anything that hasn't been said by others. Your work is incredibly masterful.


Gracias Huaman Paucer Family I love my Hummingbird from Nazca plate such exquisite detail! I soar through the glowing sky like the hummingbird whenever I look at it! Tranquilo :)


I purchased the 'Jaguar Sun' wild cat vessel. I not only find the shape wonderful but also the artistry on the side. The detail is so impeccable. I have purchased quite a few pieces from this family's art and will most definitely continue to make further purchases. Thanks to a gifted family. Kathie New Port Richey Florida USA
