Burnished copper brings light and shadow to this primitive mask design. Each earring features a three-quarter mask with edges that imply broken pottery.
The style of this carved mask bears a strong resemblance to the Inca sculptures if the 15th and 16th century. The Inca civilization standardized certain characteristics in their statues. They imposed those standards on all of their regions and colonies, but encouraged artists to maintain other characteristics that were unique to their region. They created a rich tapestry art, all of which has an identifiable Inca flavor. That’s the vibe you’ll find in these modern-made earrings.
The burnished copper design measures 40 mm from top to bottom and 20 mm at the widest point. These earrings are solid copper and weigh 9 grams each. Our jewelry is polished by hand; No corrosive solvents or dips are used.
**Our unique jewelry is always boxed for shipping.**
