ABOUT THE ART:

If you were to walk through any Museum that has Spanish Colonial~Latin American paintings,or any fine art gallery that specializes in carrying 16th-18th century "Devotional Art" pieces from the Latin Americas,(with the focus on Cuzco Peru), these are the type of paintings you will find & also come out of the Cuzco School.This traditional style of painting originated after the 1534 Spanish Conquest of the Inca Empire..These style of paintings are from Roman Catholic artistic tradition based in Cusco, Peru during the Colonial period from the 16th to the 18th Centuries. The European influence in these paintings came from the Spanish who tried to convert the Incas to Catholicism. These specific style of paintings are characterized by their exclusive use of religious images, lack of perspective, and the predominance of red, yellow, and earth colors & lots of gold leaf.

These purses are literally outstanding & beautiful works of art & you will not find another that is exactly the same,since each is one of a kind!

The painter used to paint this "Madonna & Child",studied under the Cuzco masters & painted this with the same traditional methods  that were used centuries ago. It is beautifully painted onto a soft pliable quality brown Italian leather that has been hand rubbed for a distressed,antique look.The bronzy colors & 22 K gold leaf colors in the painting,do nothing but compliment the brown..The figures have a delicate disposition & you can't help but admire the stroke of the brush that was used.

The purse itself, is made in a western style & has extremely long fringe & being made in a crossbody style,will let you have the ability to leave your hands free,whether for shopping,traveling,having children to attend to & finally for safety,since you will always know where its at & will be close by your side.

Gold tone star conchos run the height of the purse on both the right & left side of the painting,along with running the length of the long strap.The interior is fully lined in red cloth & has a deep drop.

Like any fine piece of art,you can actually hang this on a wall like any other piece of art,when you are not carrying it!
