Bringing ancient Andean traditions to your home, a striking pair of decorative vases is designed by Ana Maria Enciso. She crafts each one of copper and bronze with an antiqued, oxidized finish accented with shining designs. Archaeological bird symbols celebrate the wildlife of the earth, inspired by Nazca and Moche iconography. Miniature figures that resemble monkeys and mythical beings serve as handles for the vases. This pair features a large and a small vase.
