Walter Jose Acosta crafts a faithful replica of a bird vessel attributed to the Nazca people of the Ica Valley and Rio Grande, in the Peruvian coast. Acosta crafts the sculpture of ceramic featuring the traditional "bridge" and spout that characterized the vessels of that era. Acosta paints the sculpture by hand with the warm palette of colors once preferred by the Nazca people.
