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..."

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

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

"Simply beautiful!"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

This past January, I made a trip to Peru & fell in love with the art of the Sacred Valley region. I was limited in space in my luggage, so I was THRILLED to find this traditional Incan pot available on Novica. I was blown away when I opened it: its simply perfect. It makes a fantastic visual impact in a display with some other items that I purchased from Peru. The detail is positively beautiful & its SO high in quality. I love the style & the beautiful colors that pair so well with other items in my living room. I highly, highly recommend this item!

This was perfect for our small side table! The detail is often discussed. Its often picked up and becomes a piece for discussion.
