The Peruvian sculptor who creates this diminutive pair of owls says he selects the stones that speak to him when choosing raw materials to work with. In this sculpture he works with serpentine, white onyx, aragonite, rose quartz, and sodalite, and follows the stone’s natural contours and grains. Please accept some variation in each hand-carved piece.


Handcarved in Peru. Approximately 4 3/4"W x 8"H x 2 3/4"D.

              (Based on 2 reviews)
              Category: Home Décor/Home Accents

              This charming owl clock with its tail feather pendulum has an ancient connection to the mythology of Colombia’s precolonial Muisca culture. Huitaca was the goddess of pleasure, drink, and dance. Her husband, Bochica, was the god of morality. This unlikely match ended when Bochica, frustrated with his wife’s antics, turned her into an owl and commanded her to hold up the sky. Artisans in Cota, Colombia, craft this bright accent piece from hand-painted metal. Let its whimsy remind you to enjoy life’s pleasures, in moderation.

              For thousands of years, Peruvian weavers have produced elaborate garments piece by piece on narrow looms. Rather than hiding the seams, the weavers often enhanced the garments with decorative stitches. Once a necessity, these stitches now become distinctive accents that give this red baby alpaca-blend cardigan a hand-embellished touch.

              Since ancient times, the owl and the olive branch have been featured on the Athenian currency to spread the values of the city’s patroness, Athena: victory, peace, and wisdom. The owl, with its ability to see in the darkness, represents wisdom; and the olive branch is a symbol of the goddess’s peaceful victory over Poseidon for the city of Athens. These sacred symbols propagated Athenian values of victory, peace, and wisdom throughout the ancient world, and are still featured on the Greek €1 coin.

              High in the Peruvian Altiplano, people have been using soft, durable alpaca fiber to make warm yet lightweight garments for centuries. Today international markets are being developed for this indigenous craft, which helps sustain artisans in their communities. Aymara and Quechua artisans in Peru use an alpaca blend to create this vivid garment that drapes like silk. Made entirely by hand, it is embellished with hand-knit scalloping at the cuffs and hem, and hand-painted ceramic buttons. Light, soft, easily packable, and wrinkle resistant. Handmade in Peru.

              Venetian explorer and trader Marco Polo was one of the first Westerners to travel the Silk Road, bringing European goods to Asia and returning with, among other things, precious gems. Here, the journey is embodied in garnet, peridot, amethyst, and granulated 24-k gold vermeil. Renaissance designer Benvenuto Cellini's work for the Medici family is adapted by Chinese jewelers using faceted gems mined in India—true fusion of three cultures. Read more about Marco Polo's journey in Mike Edwards' 2001 series of articles for National Geographic magazine.

              The Museo Amano in Lima, Peru, is home to lovely textiles by the pre-Columbian Chancay culture. A 3,000-year-old woven-gauze Chancay head cloth was the inspiration for this supersoft 100% baby alpaca cardigan. The delicate lacy knit features slightly flared sleeves and mother-of-pearl buttons. Hip length.

              Versatile with lightweight warmth, this alpaca-blend cloak is great for travel in changeable climates.

              The art of reverse painting on glass was brought to Peru by settling Spaniards in the 15th century. Local artisans emulated the style found on mirrors and other Spanish household objects and, in time, added so much of their own inspiration that the technique became recognized as a Peruvian craft tradition. There are a dwindling number of Peruvian artists who still practice this unique and romantic art. Here the artisan captures the ethereal beauty of butterflies on the hinged lid of a handcrafted wooden jewelry box.

              Archaeologists call the period between 1475 and 1532 Peru’s Late Horizon. Most smaller civilizations had become part of the Inca Empire, which dominated the region in the pre-Columbian era. Architecture, ceramics, and textile arts flourished. The gold and red geometric pattern of this soft baby alpaca and silk scarf is inspired by a woven sling from the Late Horizon period.
