Details

Ai Aepec, the supreme god of the Moche people, sheds two solitary tears; his face is stern and fearsome. The gesture expresses Ai Aepec's divine sensibility. Ana Maria Enciso invokes the presence of the powerful deity as she creates this extraordinary mask. She crafts the mask of copper and bronze and treats the face to a galvanized bath to achieve the distinct green finish.
