Witness the rich cultural tapestry of the Andean region at the ongoing exhibition dedicated to the iconic Pucará Bull at the Art Gallery, India International Centre (IIC), New Delhi. Organised by the Embassy of Peru, this unique showcase promises to be a captivating exploration of the Peruvian artistry and heritage

The exhibition, which has already toured many countries around the world, is a part of the celebrations of the 60 years of the establishment of diplomatic relations with India. It is an exploration of the intricate world of Peruvian culture, art and spirituality. Visitors will also be able to enjoy some of the highlights of the important De La Mata art collection of indigenist paintings.

The Pucará Bull, an emblematic symbol deeply rooted in Peru’s history, represents more than just an artistic masterpiece; it is a compelling emblem of protection, fertility and prosperity. This beautiful ceramic originates from the small town of Pucará in southern Peru, where local artisans have been crafting these ceramic sculptures for generations. The bulls, adorned with vibrant and intricate designs, traditionally stand guard on rooftops and entrances, warding off evil spirits and bestowing blessings upon the household.

From traditional representations to contemporary interpretations, this display will showcase the evolution of this iconic symbol while celebrating the skill and creativity of Peruvian artisans.
