The ancestral traditions of Peru´s andean region were brought to the city of Holguín as part of the Iberoamerican Crafts Fair Iberoarte 2017, which will extend until October 29 in this eastern Cuban city.

Garments, pottery, musical instruments and religious ornaments native to the region of Ayacucho, about three thousand meters above sea level, are exhibited to the public at the Expo-Holguin Exhibition Center, one of the venues for the event.

The exhibition brings Cubans closer to the life of Peruvian peasants, through the representation of folk musicians, flower vendors and other typical characters, said Virgilio Ore, a native of that nation and creator of the works.

The ceramic objects of the exhibit are manufactured by hand in a family workshop for more than four decades, while The tree of life and The lamp house, religious symbols of that ancestral culture, complete the objects of the exhibition, one of the most striking of the Fair.

Iberoarte 2017 opened its doors last Friday in the city of Holguin with the participation of 45 artisans from 10 countries, as a space for cultural exchange among artists of the region.

Since its first edition in 2001, the event has its permanent headquarters in the Cuban city of parks, coinciding with the Ibero-American Culture Festival to be held from the 24 to 30 of October, also in this city.
