SILVERSMITH WORK


Silversmith work in Cusco is also a heritage of ancient Prehispanic and Colonial traditions. For instance, the tupos have andean origins: those ornamental needles used by the women peasants to tie their cloth. These objects are also worked in copper and have a rich decoration in the head of the needle with animal and vegetal features. Some of the techniques kept by the silversmith of Cusco are also of prehispanic origin like outlining the models in mud mixed with alpaca and guinea pig fur.




CANDLES


Working with Candles is another popular art growing in Cusco. This phenomenon has appeared because the decorated Candles and wax Candles are frequently used during numerous religious celebrations. In the street Meloc, few blocks far from the Main Square, the visitor will find the biggest quantity of candle shops.
Among the most experienced artisans we find the Moreno family. The pioneer of this tradition was Mrs. Rosa Moreno who died in 1988. She learnt the secrets of this art from her grandfather who was very skilful making decorative Candles and wax Candles. The descendants of Rosa Moreno continue with the family tradition making Candles with aniline, purpurin and tinsel in order to have the bright and the chromatic rich that characterized its decoration.

The size of the Candles varies from miniatures of one centimeter to huge Candles of two meters.
These artisans also prepare designs according to the customer requests.
