Story Behind the Art:
Jaime Zapata Espinoza creates masks inspired by his profound Peruvian roots. 'My objective is to transmit human emotions in seemingly animated objects.

To decorate my pieces I also use hand-woven elements with Inca motifs,' explains the artisan, who has exhibited his work in Peru, Germany and Japan.
