Centering floral tendrils on a cool green background, a single ruby hints at untold riches. Asunta Pelaez paints the motifs by hand on the reverse side of glass, giving them a colorful clarity. A traditional Cajamarca handicraft, the panes adorn a set of two gilded wood coffers.
About the Artist: Asunta Pelaez tells her story: 'At first my I husband's family taught me, then we united our skills and labor. I realized that the more I practiced, the more this craft won me over, offering me tremendous gratification. Now I consider it a way of life. This whole process demands incredible patience and attention to detail. My designs are inspired by nature, and by traditional scenes from my town and region. I feel very proud of the works that I create.'
The Asunta Pelaez Artisan Collection is brought to you by Novica in Association with National Geographic. This beautiful piece was handcrafted by Asunta Pelaez in Peru. An artisan story card will be included with your purchase.
