Meet the Artisan
In the heart of Cusco, amidst the harmonious blend of Incan and colonial architectures, the legacy of Señor Domingo stands tall and proud. His father and grandfather, both master woodcarvers, passed down not only the skill but also the passion that bound the soul of the craftsman to the essence of the wood. Over the years, Domingo's gifted hands transformed raw cedar into majestic altar frames, intricate bed headboards, and even complete balconies that now adorn the streets of Cusco. His reputation grew so profound that whispers of his name echoed in the sacred halls of churches, leading him to restore their grand altars to their former glory.
The art of woodcarving, as practiced by Señor Domingo, is not merely about shaping the wood but breathing life into it. Every groove he carves, every detail he etches, encapsulates the rich tapestry of Andean culture, a testament to over 40 years of unwavering dedication and countless hours of labor. But Domingo's vision extends beyond his creations. To him, the preservation of this art form lies in passing it forward. With immense patience, he has guided the hands of his children and many eager learners, ensuring that the rhythms of the Andean carving art echo in the hearts of generations to come.
