Featured Reviews on Archaeological Vases
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!
I have 3 pieces from this artist. I love the materials he uses and the colours are outstanding. Great quality. I?m sure I will purchase again from him
