Crafted by hand, this jewelry box by Julio Sanchez is a superb example of a traditional Peruvian art. Richly tooled leather flows across cedar wood, to recall ancient Inca icons. It opens to reveal a mirror in the lid.
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.
