Story Behind the Art:
I was born January 27, 1949 in Parinacochas, Ayacucho where I grew up with my parents and siblings. My father was a goldsmith and I inherited my love for art from him. I married very young so I had to start working on my own. I kept all this from my family and, when they found out about it, they kicked me out of the house. So I found a job in the workshop of an acquaintance. I didn't have any tools and the person that helped me tremendously was a friend who gave me great support. One of my favorite hobbies is traveling, getting to know my own country as well as other countries and their cultures. I'd describe my art as a way of capturing all my effort and dedication toward my family. I began working to provide for them and I continue to do so. What motivates me is that I want to learn more about my ancestors and our cultural legacy. What I want to transmit is everything that ancient Peruvian cultures left for the world. I want everyone to know these great artisans and their creations. This art means a lot in my life; it is how I support my family and is also my passion. My greatest challenge is to always give my all for my family and to understand my wife so as to be a good example to our children. Thank you for putting your faith in artisans and our completely handmade creations. I send you a big hug and may God bless you.

For our seventh anniversary I was looking for something copper and this cross was perfect. Arrived and was even better than the picture. We found a special place in our home for it. Great craftsmanship.Read More
This cross is so pretty. I read other reviews where the customer claimed it was smaller than expected. It's exactly the size that was listed in its description. That's why the dimensions are given. I love the story behind why the crafter began making it. It was heartwarming. I have mine displayed on a shelf that needed something special, and this definitely fits the bill. Handmade in Peru by a man who works hard to provide for his family. The craftsmanship and choice of materials he chose are so well done. Doubt very much I would be able to find this piece in the regular retail environment...Read More
