The specialty finish features a very striking finish of gold leaf tones creating depth and contrast against a dramatic black field in this reverse painted art box. The technique used embodies an art form developed hundreds of years ago in the small villages of the Andes mountains. The artists were able to create colorful objects utilizing indegenous vegetable and plant based colors. The techniques evolved over the years from generation to generation and expanded to painting hides and pottery , it was later discovered that by using this technique and by painting on the reverse side of glass that the colors and designs where even more beautifully magnified. Today they are even further enriched by backing the painting panels with gold and silver leaf foils. We offer many color options in these fine authentic Peruvian accessories.
