The artisan says about his passion for his art: “Art has always attracted me with its mysticism. Growing up in the Inca sacred valley was a definite motivation and I've spent hours and hours reading about the history of my beautiful Peru. There's nothing I enjoy more than working in clay to create beautiful sculptures and archaeological replicas of objects the ancients used in celebrations and religious rites.”
