Details

Peruvian artisans Antuane and Santos handcraft a pendant necklace inspired by the Lady of Cao, a mummified woman from the Moche culture in present day Peru who is often a symbol of female empowerment. Made of aguano masha wood, the pendant features a headdress in the shape of a ceremonial knife and an owlish face, a reference to the owl-themed pottery found buried with the Lady of Cao. The pendant hangs from a waxed cotton cord with an aluminum clasp.
