#279 Chulucanas Peruvian Nativity

Acquired 2001

Made in Chulucanas, Peru, of clay. Chulucanas is a township in the northwestern corner of Peru just inland from the Pacific Ocean. This is a signed, collectible eight-piece set of hand-formed figures. My set is handcrafted and signed by Miguel Sullon of Chulucanas. Double-fired, each piece has lustrous tones akin the ancient Inca pottery. Each face of the round figures also reflects the natives of Peru skin color. This set, purchased in November 2001, from a new catalog to me - Eziba - a catalog of handcrafted items from around the globe. Purchase price, $95.
