Papier mache sculpture, 'Aiapec Totem' (Peru)

This sculpture from Peru depicts the god Aiapec, the principle deity for the pre-Incan Mochica people. Associated with sacrifice and military prowess, Aiapec is shown here holding his characteristic lance, wearing a bat-shaped headdress. A small human accompanies him. Peru's Jaime Espinoza designs this fantastic sculpture, handcrafting it of papier mache and cement. He adds various jasper stones to the sculpture for a truly stunning piece of home decor.
