Hand-painted with intricate floral motifs, this traditional reverse-painted glass tray is the work of Peru's Asunta Pelaez. She hand-pants the designs onto the reverse side of a glass panel, decorating the tray's bottom. The tray is crafted of wood, complete with silver-tone trim and handles at the sides.
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.
