A cuchimilco, believed to keep bad energies at bay, proudly represents Peru's Chancay culture. He wears an ornate headdress and decorative face paint or tattoos on the cheeks and chin. Cuchimilcos are usually found in pairs featuring a man and a woman â€” symbolic of divine duality, a belief held by all pre-Hispanic cultures. Walter Jose Acosta crafts this figurine by hand, showing the expertly replicating the artistic stylizations of ancient Andean peoples.
