Details

Wilfredo Rios pays tribute to Peru's ancient Inca civilization with this superbly crafted accent table. Adorned with finely tooled leather, it is created from mohena wood — similar in grain to mahogany. The motifs depict mysterious men with the heads of birds, originally carved into stone in the fortress of Tiahuanaco.

Your Purchase Makes a Difference!

Now in his eighties, Wilfredo continues to work, handcrafting each piece of his furniture with traditional techniques. He says simply, "My art is my life." In his early teens, Wilfredo learned the art of leatherwork in a workshop where most of the employees were profoundly deaf. Through the years, he worked his family out of extreme poverty and eventually opened his own workshop. He has taught many artisans but is most proud of passing this traditional Peruvian art to his brother Abel and his son Jose. Both Abel and Jose are also Novica artisans.

Wilfredo's Novica sales are his only source of income. He is in his eighties, lives alone and struggles to provide for himself. He still thinks of growing his workshop and is thankful for the dignity and income that come from working with Novica.

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