Details

Brandishing bird-scepters, the Inca god Wiracocha stands firmly in the firmament. The original divinity of the people of Tiahuanaco, this god emerged from the waters of Lake Titicaca. He created the heavens, the earth, and the first generation of giants who inhabited the land in total darkness. Wilfredo Rios creates the image in finely tooled leather to adorn a magazine rack. A loop at the top lets it be carried from room to room or be hung on the wall.

Now in his eighties, Wilfredo continues to work, handcrafting each piece of his furniture with traditional techniques. He says simply: "My art is my life." In his early teens Wilfredo learned the art of leatherwork in a workshop where most of the employees were profoundly deaf. Through the years he worked his family out of extreme poverty and eventually opened his own workshop. He has taught many artisans but is most proud of passing this traditional Peruvian art to his brother Abel and his son Jose. Both Abel and Jose are also Novica artisans.

Wilfredo's Novica sales are his only source of income. He is in his eighties, lives alone and struggles to provide for himself. He still thinks of growing his business and is thankful for the dignity and income that stem from working with Novica.

This artist is an elder master and continues to actively practice their craft.
