Huamanga Stone Art

 

Huamanga stone carvings started up in colonial times due to the scarcity of marble and porcelain. The early motifs dwelled on the infant Christ and other religious images such as saints, crosses, virgins and relics. Later craftsmen were to develop new religious motifs and images linked to the Creole culture (for example the image of the vicuña standing over the Castillian lion). Today, Huamanga stone carvings portray Nativity scenes within oval-shaped recesses, replicas of the monument of the Pampa de la Quinua (scene of a famous battle for independence), as well as other figures; all with a rough finish and mainly offered as souvenirs. Piedra de Huamanga - Huamanga stone is white alabaster. (PromPeru). These pictures were taken inside house-factory of artist Julio Gálvez in Barrio Santa Ana, Ayacucho.
