NOTES Replica by Alejandro Velez Abanto Ayacucho (1925 - living) Peru. This ceramic sculpture depicts a nude couple in a traditional coital position. Intertwined lovers, the two figures embrace each other as one. The figure's thin eyes, hooked nose, and masculine proportions exude Vicus tradition and potent appeal. The Vicus people lived from 100 to 600 A.D. in the fertile lowlands of northern coastal Peru. Through the years, the Vicus remained autonomous and were never conquered by the powerful Inca civilization.
