Pair of Pucara bulls, with ornamental figures


A pair of traditional Pucara bulls painted with a base color and decorated with a compilation of ornamental figures. It is made using fine clay with synthetic colors. Originating in the area of Pucara, the Pucara bulls are commonly used in the Andes for decorating the roof of the houses. They are believed to bring good luck to the house, and they indicate appreciation to the importance that the bulls have played in the contemporary Andean culture.

  • Beautiful salamanca, good service

    by Manolis B.

    We bought the large variant of this salamanca vase earlier this year. The vase is exactly as pictured. It looks very nice with vivid colors and it fits nicely into the living room. The quality and finish of the product is very good and it certainly exceeds the expectations from the price.
