Elongated eyes and fierce fangs characterize the jaguar, deified in pre-Hispanic times. These exquisite masks by Ana Maria Enciso link the mythic beast with the condor and the fox, both represented in the figures' elaborate earrings. Enciso crafts the masks from copper and bronze treated with galvanic solutions. A hook at the back facilitates hanging.
About the Artist: Peru's Ana Maria Enciso says, 'For 24 years I have dedicated myself to metalwork in the city where I married. My husband is an able jeweler, from whom I learned the art of working with silver and plaques. Today we have a small family business, in which my children are also involved, and we work together with dedication, constantly developing new products. In my work I seek to recover the folklore and joy of the Andean people.'
The Ana Maria Enciso Artisan Collection is brought to you by Novica in Association with National Geographic. This beautiful piece was handcrafted by Ana Maria Enciso in Peru. An artisan story card will be included with your purchase.
