Villagers dance at the foot of the mountains in a festival celebration depicted by artisan Teodolinda Seguil of Peru. Using a special tool called a buril, the artisan carves this magnificent scene into the sides of this gourd decorative box.
In the Andes, the Land of the Four Corners, mountains are sacred. So is culture. The Nazca lines, the Wari glyphs, the Quipu knots and the complex multi-colored textiles of the Incas are all recorded and live on the work of contemporary Peruvian artisans.
