Huamanga stone carving is a traditional form of artistic expression for many Peruvian artisans. Some say it dates back as far as the 17 century, originating in the city of Huamanga, in Ayachucho,/em> Peru. This place name is derived from the Quechua words aya (death) and kuchu (corner), referring to a major battle for independence. Some interpret the name to mean soul or spirit corner, in reference to the great devotion of its people, even in pre-Hispanic times
Huamanga is an alabastrine, translucent limestone, soft and easy to work, which lends itself to being carved. The surface of this piece was finished by applying a thin layer of wax on the shining surface of the rock, highlighting its translucent quality and giving an ivory colored finish.
