Details

The radiance of the solar star inspires the Huaman Paucar Family to design their own version of the Intihuatana stone. Meaning "Hitching Post of the Sun," it is found at Machu Picchu's highest point. Some believe the Inca carved several of these stone outcrops to connect earth and sky; other's believe it was a way of tying Father Sun to his Inca children. The Huaman Paucar Family honor this legendary emblem of Inca spiritualism with a handcrafted ceramic plate, which they paint with intricate detail.

"An attractive piece, but..."

This was bought to replace a similar bowl bought in Cuszco in 1980 [broken in a house move]. It is nowhere near as artisanal as the original. While it may be handmade as claimed, it looks like a commercial piece. Overall a litlle disappointing

Best Uses
  • It is labelled 'For decorative use only': another disappointment

Gracias Huaman Paucer Family I love my Hummingbird from Nazca plate such exquisite detail! I soar through the glowing sky like the hummingbird whenever I look at it! Tranquilo :)

I purchased the 'Jaguar Sun' wild cat vessel. I not only find the shape wonderful but also the artistry on the side. The detail is so impeccable. I have purchased quite a few pieces from this family's art and will most definitely continue to make further purchases. Thanks to a gifted family. Kathie New Port Richey Florida USA
