Inspired by the power of books to "transport anyone to worlds where imagination has no limits," Peruvian artisan Luitpol handcrafts this aluminum sculpture of a harlequin immersed in a book. The lime green harlequin, laser cut from a pliable aluminum called Plastimetal, sits on a semi-circle of polished aluminum with an open book of shining aluminum in its hands. A green-rimmed purple heart on the harlequin's chest shows his love of reading.
This artist uses traditional techniques handed down through the generations and/or creates culturally significant items, helping keep these traditions alive.
Luitpol has received 3 microcredit loans with 0% interest from Kiva and Novica, the first for $700 and the most recent for $700.
"Whimsical and beautiful!"
The sculpture appears exactly as it does in the photograph. It looks great from any angle. It's become one of my favorite things.
- sculpture, reading, whimsy
