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. I use recycled paper and textiles, cans, and some vegetal elements like rushes. Colors are given with natural oxides and earths. 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.

    Both pieces were very different than I expected in a good way. Given the material they are made out of I thought they would be very delicate. However both masks are very sturdy. Buyers need to be aware of the size of the mask as both are relatively small. They would be outstanding as desk art or to fill that certain place on a wall too small for standard size mask.

    These masks are incredible! The detail is exquisite with subtle expressions on each. The mix of papier mache and jute give these pieces a very organic look. I'm very pleased with them.
