Details

Chasquis were Inca messengers, trained from a very early age to run long distances and traverse the seemingly impossible terrain of the Peruvian Andes. Ana Maria Enciso portrays the messenger on a copper plate surrounded by masks. Bronze details emphasize the cool copper contours of an extraordinary design.

"Fabulous!"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

This mask wall art caught my eye when I saw a picture of it - I just immediately loved the color of the copper patina with the shiny flashes. The pictures online dont do it justice as it just gleams on my wall from all the way across the room and draws you to it. It isnt a big hanging, but it is definitely a show-stopper! Im so happy I splurged on it!
