Cedar and mahogany sculpture, 'Andean Harpist' (Peru)

Holding his harp tenderly, a man strums tunes from his beloved Andean highlands. He wears a bright chullo hat and colorful cloak in a fascinating sculpture by John Barrow. "It's part of my 'Folklore' series that is inspired by this beautiful country and its regional traditions," says Barrow with admiration. He makes the sculpture with hand-carved segments of cedar, mahogany and ishpingo woods, which he dyes with natural pigments.
