John Barrow captures the flirtatious essence of the Marinera dance in a colorful sculpture. "It's from my 'Folklore' series, inspired by this beautiful country and its regional traditions," says Barrow with admiration. Originating from northern Peru, the Marinera recreates the sea of emotions surrounding flirtation, attraction and falling in love. It can be danced individually or in couples, and performers hold handkerchiefs in sign of peace. Barrow works with hand-carved segments of cedar, mahogany and ishpingo woods, which he dyes with natural pigments.
About the Artist: John Barrow was born in London and settled in Peru in 1969. He learned the wood carver's craft from his father. 'Living in Peru, I got to know a variety of beautiful wood types. When I retired, I was finally able to dedicate myself completely to my passion, carving! I have designed my own machines and tools to help me work the wood in a different way.'
The John Barrow Artisan Collection is brought to you by Novica in Association with National Geographic. This beautiful piece was handcrafted by John Barrow in Peru. An artisan story card will be included with your purchase.
