Nestled close to Mother, a baby llama blends in with her spotted red coat in a charming ceramic vessel by Walter Jose Acosta. Crafted and decorated by hand, the sculpture replicates the art of Peru's ancient Moche civilization. Domesticated animals such as the dog, guinea pig and llama often figured in their highly developed ceramic arts.
