I just love ancient artifacts. So I was very pleased when a family member gave me the gift of a sculpture he made. It was one of a series of three sculptures, all slightly different… all excellent. The figure is a rendition of traditional Peruvian/Pre-Columbian artifacts. Hand crafted of clay and painted with gold accents, it has become a favorite item of home decor. It’s truly a museum quality piece from the hands of a very talented artisan hobbyist, who seeks no acknowledgment here for the work.
It’s been hanging in my studio for several years, and now I’m sharing with the graphic design community this free stock photo I took (2500×2500) and 2 high resolution TIFFs for making Photoshop brushes.
They’re not exactly assets for everyday design work, like many of our free vectors are, but the iconic look has tons of visual character. I added some lighting and color effects to the original, so there are two versions in the layered PSD stock photo download. Let us know if you end up using it for either personal or commercial works. Enjoy!
