Moche Jailer Vessel - Peru
Rowing its boat, the jailer transports the prisoners entrusted to his care. Walter Jose Acosta crafts an admirable ceramic sculpture following the artistic customs of the Moche people.
"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.”
