Moche Dragon Horn Vessel
A fierce horned dragon emits a shrill scream, beautifully depicted in ceramic. Walter Jose Acosta takes his inspiration from Peru's vast archaeological heritage, replicating the work of the ancestors. Made in Peru, and signed by the artist Walter Jose Acosta.
Born in the Huambo province in the Amazon region of Peru, Acosta attended the School of Fine Arts as a teenager. There he learn about design and techniques for creating Pre-Columbian replicas.
"The message Walter Jose Acosta want his art to convey is that “our ancestors crafted beautiful and complex pieces with only their hands as tools, without the kind of technology we have nowadays. Through their work they expressed all that they saw and wondered about from their environment, their thoughts, and beliefs. Clay was their medium. I feel that Peruvian ceramic art is a way to communicate with our ancestors and to keep them alive for the coming generations.”
