Details

Ana Maria Enciso, a Peruvian artisan versed in metalworking, produces this stunning wall mask in her workshop outside Lima through an involved process. This mask goes through a strategic crafting process, with the artisan starting by shaping copper sheets by hand using a chisel, then receiving smaller detail work and finally being bathed in a solution to create the copper sulfate finish. This mask is a reproduction of the larger original version, depicting an octopus in the motif of a personified sun beaming at the earth below.

"It captured me !"

After I first saw this a while ago it kept playing my mind. I am very pleased to say it now sits above the fireplace and I look at it more than the TV !

"This is so loved and next to the picture of Our Father Above"

I loved it. The second I pulled it out of the box and wrapping I took it to all my neighbors, who adored it too, as well as my ex husband who liked it. I am truly the proud owner of such beauty and care that went into the making of this more than gorgeous Chrysocolla Cross.. Thank you, Mr Franco. Your work is fabulous Kim

"Magnificent craftmanship"

Just love all metal detailing to surface face and hinged jaw whiskers that is like a loose fitting bracelet or beard on the sculpture. Love the characterization of cat -- colors and turquoise contrasts.
