Cedar sculpture, 'Andean Vicunas' (Peru)

Slender and graceful, two vicu as stand tall on willowy legs. One quietly crops grass while the other stretches toward the sky. Johnny Chamba depicts the pair in an elegant dark brown cedar wood sculpture. Related to the llama and alpaca, the vicu a is so important to Andean customs and economy that it appears on the national seal.
