Story Behind the Art:
'My name is Javier Claudio Ramirez Montalvo. My family strives to perpetuate our carving tradition, a legacy we have inherited from our ancestors.
'In 2003 I decided to go my own way as I wanted to work on my original designs. I have always enjoyed carving! I love the look of wood, its color and natural appearance. My brother taught me how to find the detail in every little corner. He has inspired me to continue improving my work.
'I describe my work as figurative. My ambition to become a great artist is what motivates me, and I would like my work to be remembered. I work with Inca themes as well as religious, which we sometimes forget.
'The greatest challenge I have faced is to survive in this art form, and explore other venues such as sculpting or painting.
'I hope Novica clients will like my work, which I have made dedication and care for you.'
