This is from the estate of a retired Air Force Colonel in Texas. I was told they were stationed in Peru and his wife bought this statue.

It is suppose to be from a well know artist. He never liked it.

If anyone knows anything about it please email me.

If anyone is interested in pursuing this feel free to contact us for information on communicating with Merida or visiting as he is my wife's uncle and she has many, many relatives in Cusco that can be contacted for additional info.

About this Piece of Artesania
by: David

We have boxes and boxes of extremely similar pieces which we offer on Ebay. The artist for our pieces is Paulino Tamani. The original importer is a native of Peru and had for many years imported them along with many other artesanias including clothing made by local craftsmen in their home looms. Thanks.

Merida's work
by: jaime98903

Merida is my wife's uncle and lives in Cusco. His wife also made some figures in his style but not nearly as refined. This piece really looks like his wife's work.

We have one very special piece done by the artist as a wedding present to us and it is phenomenal, two others by his wife and they are so so.

Found the author:
by: Hugo

I live in Peru and I remembered seen this kind of ceramic products while traveling through different parts of the country.
I searched online and found out they were created by an artist named "Ediberto Mérida".
They are considered some kind of "protest art" because instead of portraying beauty, they show the suffering and hard work of the Andean people.

Hope this data helps!
