This dazzling mask represents Inti, the Inca god of the sun, inspired by the image adorning Coricancha Temple (also Sun Temple). Architecturally this temple is not as impressive as others in the Cuzco Imperial City, but it was the most important to the ancient Inca as it was built to revere their supreme deity. Archeologists would only be allowed in after having fasted, be barefoot, and carry a heavy load on their backs as symbol of humbleness. Angel Franco makes several adaptations as he designs this wonderful version. Working with copper and bronze, he crafts the mask by hand.
