The Wari civilization originated in Ayacucho (from 700 to 1000 A.D.). They formed a large empire and imposed their social and religious laws throughout an expansive territory. In an active cultural interchange, they learned ceramic techniques from the Nazca and from the Tiahuanacos learned how to grow crops at different altitudes. Celebrating the artistic heritage of colorful fabrics made of alpaca wool and cotton dyed with cochineal and indigo, this alluring mask will bring a touch of ancestral grandeur to any contemporary decor.
Using a combination of recycled paper, plaster, and rush fibers, Jaime Zapata Espinosa explores his profound Peruvian roots, finding the spell for giving life to such elements - transforming them into a vibrant celebration of a glorious past.
