About this item: Inti - the God of the Sun - emerges in every evocative detail of this handcrafted mask. Worshipped by the Inca people, he ruled over the divine realm while the Emperor (said to be the son of Inti) reigns in the mortal world, acting as the deity's intermediary. Offerings were made to him of gold, silver, livestock, and the so-called Virgins of the Sun. This image is based on archaeological finds at a site named Portada del Sol in the Peruvian high plains. Elaborated in copper and bronze by Ana Maria Enciso, it mesmerizes with its burnished tones - executed using galvanizing techniques.

About our Artist: Peru's Ana Maria Enciso says, 'For 24 years I have dedicated myself to metalwork in the city where I married. My husband is an able jeweler, from whom I learned the art of working with silver and plaques. Today we have a small family workshop in which my children are also involved, and we work together with dedication, constantly developing new products. In my work I seek to recover the folklore and joy of the Andean people.'...
