Inspired by Peruvian history, Karla Contreras recreates a design by ancient Inca stonemasons. The stone depicted on this decorative vase comes from the wall along the Hatun Rumiyoc, Quechua for "Big Stone." It is carved with 12 angles to fit perfectly with the stones around it, and today is a part of the Palacio Arzobispal in Cuzco.
