The Indigo Arts website has remained active over the last year and a half despite the widespread shutdowns due to the COVID-19 virus.   I have been able to resume regular operations.  I am able to pack and ship most orders within a few days.   Shipping times have increased during this period.  The gallery is open to visitors on an appointment only basis and according to city masking regulations.   Please phone or email ahead.  

Note:  USPS service remains very  slow.   I don't recommend it if you are in a hurry.   Parcels sent by 2 or 3 Day Priority Mail may take several weeks to arrive.  Please note also that USPS shipping estimates include little or no insurance, which we must charge separately.
Please stay safe!

Claudio Jimenez Quispé (Peru), 2016
Painted plaster sculpture in painted wood box
(7" h. x 6 1/2" w. x 2" d.).

This little retablo is both a masterpiece of Claudio Jimenez's miniature work and a chilling historical document.  It tells the story of Peru's bitter civil war between the Sendero Luminoso (Shining Path) guerilla group and the Peruvian military through the experience of Claudio's own family.  We see time compressed with masked soldiers tying, torturing and killing naked peasants in the background, while the central foreground (and present day) image is of a forensic exhumation of the grave of one of Claudio's relatives - white-coated technician examining a bone with a magnifying glass while a grieving woman and her children look on.
