Set into the original foundations of Inca buildings in the old centre of Cusco, Peru.
What’s behind them is unknown to me.
The studio of Pablo Seminario is in Urubamba, a town of about 8000 people in the Sacred Valley of the Incas. We were privileged to visit with the artist at his home, shop and studio where he took the time to meet us and describe his approach to the art that he produces.
Ceramic items produced in his studio/workshop by staff are also on sale in his small store on the site.
These days, I am drinking my morning coffee from one of his uniquely decorated mugs.
Getting from room to room inside one of the structures in Machu Picchu.
Each individual block is shaped to fit precisely. There is no mortar holding them in place.
Quite remarkable as the Incas used no draft animals, iron tools, or wheels.
