Crafted entirely by hand of earth-tone ceramic, a pre-Hispanic man wears elaborate clothing and jewelry with an intricate headdress. Nicaraguan artisan Arlen Estrada creates the vase, inspired by offerings that were once performed in past times. During these offerings, people would wear their best clothing and jewelry for the gods. Says Estrada, "I love crafting these pieces, since they have a touch of Nicaraguan ceramics and they show scenes of our ancestors from their daily lives."
