Rich textures suggest grains of corn as a golden ear emerges from emerald leaves. The staff of life throughout the Americas, maize was the basic foodstuff of the Inca and their descendents. Exalting their heritage, Manolo and Lucho create the images in finely tooled leather to surround a wall mirror.
Manolo and Lucho has received 7 microcredit loans with 0% interest from Kiva and Novica, the first for $2000 and the most recent for $800. Proceeds were used to invest in the purchase of the raw materials such as leather, wood and glass, as well as the components needed for the production of mirrors.
