.After the style of Nazca whistle bottles, this ceramic vessel is handcrafted by Peruvian artisan Ynocencio Ccahuana.  He creates the sculpture in the shape of a bird, with a blowfish painted by hand over its body. A rustic finish gives this amazing sculpture a historic vibe.

Cchuana learned his craft while helping in pottery workshops. “My teachers were master artisans whose Inca ancestors once lived in these valleys. They shared their traditional techniques with me. My mother helped me set up my own workshop in a small Cuzco town. I, too, put a lot of sacrifice and work into it. Today, my wife and children share my same passion for historical Peruvian ceramics.”

"It took me a long time to master the art, but I knew this was something I wanted to do for the rest of my life. Ever since, there's been no sacrifice that wasn't worth it. I have no doubt that my passion will overcome any challenge in life."
