13 April – 7 May 2023

An international touring exhibition of unique Peruvian folk art brought to Wellington from its successful Japanese tour courtesy of the Embassy of Peru.

The Peruvian Andes have a mystical aura, where ancestral beliefs based on nature and the magic of objects mix with Christian faith. In the south of Peru in Pucará-Puno, spiritualism and ceramic art combine in the “Torito de Pucará”, a unique cultural artifact full of symbols and details that has become representative of the Pucará culture and of Peruvian culture generally.

These colourful ceramics date to the arrival of the Spanish and introduction of bulls into traditional festivals. Today it is common to find colourful ceramic representations of bulls as ornaments both inside homes and on the ridges of their roofs, usually in pairs that capture the fusion of positive and negative energies to act as a symbol of protection and happiness for the families within.
