Overview

These luminaires represent the contemporary art form of Pre-Hispanic custums.

Goals

The metal reminds us of the petroglyphs, engraved or carved stones which indicated the location of rivers or seas. Wires hang from the petroglyphs with native seeds...Also hand carved crystal pieces with Pre-Hispanics stamps which were once tattoed on the fisherman´s body. To finalize, shells form the Pacific Coast used on necklaces....the client wants to show Costa Rican Ancestors customs.
