Every year on June 24, Wiracocha, God of the Sun, is honored in the Inti Raymi, meaning "Festival of the Sun," in Cuzco. The Inti Raymi symbolizes the eternal consecration between the sun and his children - human beings. Honoring their traditions, the Rios Family creates this cedar wood chest covered with tooled leather. The interior, conveniently designed, has open spaces and drawers.
About the Artist: Jose Antonio Rios and his family have been dedicated to the traditional art of tooling and embossing leather furniture for several generations. This activity was embraced by Jose Antonio‘s grandparents, with the same devotion and caring dedication, using the same technique to produce handcrafted items bearing their own unique touch. Jose Antonio Rios says: "For us, embossing leather is a family tradition. My father inherited it from his father, and handed it down to us. Our creations are totally handmade. After sketching the figures, the piece is embossed with chisel and hammer. Then, the embossed leather is placed on the furniture piece, simultaneously prepared. We are certain that, having been made with so much love and quality, our work will be a proud ambassador of the Peruvian culture and traditions to the world."
The Rios Family Artisan Collection is brought to you by Novica in Association with National Geographic. This beautiful piece was handcrafted by Rios Family in Peru. An artisan story card will be included with your purchase.
