I render Amazonian animals: serpents and jaguars, with incisions of knives and machetes on tick layers of wet paint. I developed this technique watching some styles of the precolumbian art of my native Perú, specially the black ceramics decorated with incisions and the stone reliefs from the primitive Chavín society.
