Juan Licas Coronado adapts the shape of the traditional chullo hat to create a warm, snug environment. Inside, the Holy Family kneels together with the Three Kings to adore the newborn Jesus. For this sculpture, the artisan selects stone quarried in Huamanga in the central sierra of Peru. Its texture and color are similar to alabaster.

Artisan Information

Juan Licas Coronado

Shop all Juan Licas Coronado products

Juan Licas (1954) is a carver who works the piedra de Huamanga (stone of Huamanga). This mineral is obtained from mines in the central and southern regions of Peru. As it is soft and easy to work with, this master artisan has made it a vehicle for expressing his art.

"I've been an artisan for about 30 years. I learned stone carving since I was very young. From all those crafts, I've chosen the piedra de Huamanga because our characters are very alike. My work portrays religious motifs, and some daily scenes of the Peruvian people. My craft is simple - I choose the stone pieces according to the form I intend to create on it. The block is sawed and carved with chisels, burins, drills and other appropriate tools. Later, the piece is detailed and sanded, enhancing the beauty of its natural finish. As the stone of Huamanga is very fragile, it has to be carefully handled, and a small hit in the wrong place can be enough for destroying a piece at any stage."

In a beautiful paradox, the coarse hands of Juan Licas are delicate instruments for creating pieces with a fragile structure and a deep mystical content.

NOVICA was started with a dream to create a better world for artisans, because a better world for artisans is a better world for all.

Along the way, the founders of NOVICA discovered something very important - as artisans around the world succeeded, there was also a visible and profound impact on the communities around them.

Your purchases are that powerful. They directly and indirectly provide for education, help with health care, fund basic needs, support children, preserve disappearing arts, and of course, spread happiness around the world.

The founders of NOVICA had a vision of the future that is not one of mega factories producing cookie cutter products for all to cheaply consume. Instead, a bright future that celebrates artisans who take the time to create an item by hand. A future where time is protected, where stories are told, where unique details are honored. Love, respect, inclusiveness become driving force.
