Chimu Deity - Brass and Copper Vase
Ana Maria Enciso depicts an enigmatic figure on a handsome copper vase. Silver eyes gaze impassively from the past, seemingly lost in their own time. Gleaming brass details define the ancient Chimu deity. On the reverse side of the vase, a messenger bears good tidings.

"I was born on April 17, 1952. For 24 years I have dedicated myself to metalwork in the city where I got married to an able smith, from whom I learned the art of working with silver and plaques. Today we have a small family business, in which my children are also involved, and we work together with dedication, constantly developing new products.
"What inspires me on a daily basis is the endless desire to improve personally and economically. In my work I seek to recover the folklore and joy of the Andean people. My products have been exhibited in craft fairs in Spain, Colombia, Argentina, and Mexico, receiving a warm welcome and a grateful impression among the people who have appreciated my work."
