Story Behind the Art:
Alfredo Inga comes from Catacao in northern Peru. 'Catacao is considered the City of Filigree,' he says. 'I began to learn this art when I was 11 years old, with friends who taught me little by little. My inspiration comes from nature, especially from flowers. I was awarded a scholarship to study with a professor from Israel and was offered the chance to teach filigree in there. But I love Peru too much to leave.'
