Details

Add a unique cultural accent to your home with this small, artisan-crafted decorative vase embellished with symbols from a World Heritage site. The ancient Nazca geoglyphs are located in southern Peru and consist of hundreds of figures scratched on the ground depicting animals and plants, both real and imaginary, along with geometric forms. These motifs are recreated in a golden tone on the sides of this copper and bronze vase by Peruvian artisan Angel Franco. Copper-colored top and bottom borders contrast with the petite vessel's beautiful green oxidation, and vertical braiding serves to separate the three embossed figures which resemble a monkey, bird, and spider.

Your Purchase Makes a Difference!

"Metal work has been part of Peruvian culture since before the Incas. It is an inheritance that my father taught me and I have taught my children. In our workshop, we make many replicas of Inca and traditional Peruvian art. We use brass, copper and silver like our ancestors did. This keeps our culture alive."

Angel still supports most of his family. He provides for his own wife and the wife of his eldest son. He pays for the education of his children. His Novica sales enable him to do so, providing a steady source of income for the family.

Angel Franco has received 5 microcredit loans with 0% interest from Kiva and Novica, the first for $600 and the most recent for $2000. Proceeds were used to invest in a bulk purchase of bronze and copper for his metalwork.

Angel has four children. His eldest son is unable to pay for the education of his two daughters. Angel provides for his granddaughters' education.

This artist is an elder master and continues to actively practice their craft.
