This is a fabulous piece for any home....the history is fascinating as well---workmanship is wonderful and love the size---big enough to use in so many different environments.
I absolutely LOVE this piece. I researched more to find out about Chasqui, and what it represented. I also wanted to learn about serpentine stone. The messenger seemed to need the companionship of a fierce puma also crafted by this gifted artisan. They make a wonderful pair, and seem to be made for each other. I gave them a couple of smokey quartz crystals to guard together on my shelf.
I am thrilled to have received the Ancient Peruvian Chancay whistle made by Walter Jose Acosta! It was tenderly wrapped and had a beautiful little ornament attached to the ribbon. Such care and artistry was taken, and I am profoundly grateful. I have shared photos of it on my facebook page, and will continue to support and promote his work! Thank you! Sharon
