The mysterious figures from the Nazca plain cover this beautiful decorative plate by Ana Maria Enciso. Working in copper, she centers the design with the Nazca monkey. Above, the hummingbird appears with the lizard to the right, the condor to the left and the fish beneath. The polished bronze images provide a spectacular contrast.
