The exhibition demonstrates the skill and beauty of the decorative and popular ceramic art in Peru. It features twenty-three pieces made by artisans from Pucará, a city located in the south of the country, near the Andes mountain range and Lake Titicaca.

This collection aims to promote part of the Peruvian cultural wealth that is passed down through generations by the inhabitants of the city of Pucará. The Pucará bull symbolizes the desire for prosperity, and the pieces are distinguished by their bright and varied colors.
