Pisco Runa

Mabelle Marra makes work inspired by her Argentinean background. Her pots are fired by traditional pre-Columbian methods: you can see her in action here. This is a trust necklace - inspired by a vessel that opposing parties would both drink from to prove their commitment and to show that no poison was involved! The figure is Pisco Runa or Bird Man - he's chewing some sort of tobacco - I love his puffy cheek.
