|The second figural Graziella Laffi brooch currently in my inventory (please also refer to Troc item #1090959) this piece is really impressive and quite unusual. I believe that here too we are dealing with the representation of an ancient Inca god, shown with snakes around his waist and in his headgear. The deity's garb is made of thick silver overlay to add dimension and depth to the design, both qualities intensified by oxidation and carefully hand-chased details. A real Laffi masterpiece and a rare brooch to come upon, it measures 2 1/2" tall by 2 1/2" wide and weighs 18.1 grams. It is signed with Laffi's name and "PERU 925", dates in the 1950s and is in excellent vintage condition.|
