Tupu I by Lucia Torres Venegas

Pin  /  Organic   OnBody
Statement: The tupu has been a traditional piece of jewelry for many centuries in Peru and the Andean landscape. Traditionally worn by women throughout different classes in precolonial society it always made a statement about the wearer’s status. With the colonization of South America, drastic shifts happened in societal structure and distribution of power. My piece of work focuses on oppression as well as on current struggles and resistances of women in Latin America against neo-colonialism and patriarchy.
