This collection is inspired by one of the richest and most mysterious nations in history: the Inca Empire, located in Cusco in modern day Peru. A civilization that was devoted to the sun, this collection features symbols that signify the three worlds of the Inca belief system. The power of the Underworld (inner earth) is represented by the snake, a symbol of truth, insight, fertility and rebirth. The Middle World (outer earth) is represented by the Puma, a symbol of intuition, power and patience. And the Upper World (sky) is represented by the Condor, a spiritual bird still invoked by the local people for advice and healing. They believe that the Condor brings peace and that when it flies overhead, it leaves an iridescent trace of light. Lama's passion for mythology and iconography is reflected vividly in this collection. Channeling her recent Inca experience, Lama has reinvented mystical symbols in handmade sterling silver and fused them with vibrant and colorful elements to reflect the palette of Peru's landscapes, archaeology and costumes.
