Standing with open arms, a couple of cuchimilcos proudly represents Peru's Chancay (1200 - 1470 A.D.). Their welcoming posture is believed to keep bad energies at bay. They are always found in pairs featuring a man and a woman symbolic of divine duality, a belief held by all pre-Hispanic cultures. Walter Jose Acosta masters ceramic techniques as he crafts each statuette by hand. He expertly replicates the artistic stylizations of the Chancay culture featuring a large head and small arms extended upwards, resembling wings. They are semi nude and adorned with red lines.
