"In my work I seek to recover the folklore and joy of the Andean people."
"I was born on April 17, 1952. For 24 years I have dedicated myself to metalwork in the city where I got married to an able smith, from whom I learned the art of working with silver and plaques. Today we have a small family business, in which my children are also involved, and we work together with dedication, constantly developing new products.
"What inspires me on a daily basis is the endless desire to improve personally and economically. In my work I seek to recover the folklore and joy of the Andean people. My products have been exhibited in craft fairs in Spain, Colombia, Argentina, and Mexico, receiving a warm welcome and a grateful impression among the people who have appreciated my work."
I have many pieces by Ana Maria Enciso. They are flawlessly crafted and stunning in their beauty. Such craftsmanship is unusual in today's marketplace.
I purchased one of Ana Maria's beautiful masks some time ago and it remains one of my most cherished decor items! I just looked at her products and am delighted to find she has created many additional art pieces! I look forward to purchasing more in the future! Ana Maria, I love the colors and metals you use, the craftmanship, and the rich heritage your work represents, in addition to your affordable prices! Thank you for your gift! All the best! Sharon
Good day ms Encisco. I received your wall plaque today entitled Smiling God. It is amazingly beautiful! I am so excited to show it off in my home! Thank you so much for sharing your talents and your gift with me! It is exquisite to say the least! Thanks again. Sincerely, Mr. Lawrie Kowalski, Edmonton, Canada
I received my copper mask - ""Tears of a God"" a few days ago and I am thrilled! I cannot wait to hang it up in our office. The craftsmanship is gorgeous and the piece features such intricate detail. Thank you so much, Ana. I will be submitting a photo when it is installed.
Today I received in the mail a beautiful set of ornaments by Ana Maria Enciso, called Christmas symbols. They are stunning and are works of art. The copper will be perfect for Christmas time and will be perfect for my Novica Christmas tree.
Thank you! It was beautiful. I am hanging the Inti by my door.
I have two of Ms. Enciso's copper art pieces and am delighted with the craftsmanship and beauty of each--Ms. Enciso is a truly a gifted artisan!
Ana, I LOVE your work! I love the materials you use as well as the designs. I have been looking for something special for my living room wall of the home I just purchased and am so glad I found yours! Thank you for your attention to detail, to the history, and to keeping your work affordable. I will look for more in the future as you make more art! (I am an artist as well, but am not selling at this time.) I will submit a photo later. Thanks again and best wishes to you!
Received the lovely copper artwork from Ana Maria entitled ""Ceremony"". Beautiful and inspiring! Mucho gracias!
I RECEIVED THE METAL VASE THAT I HAD ORDERED AND I USUALLY DON'T OFFER FEED BACK ABOUT AN ITEM I ORDERED BUT THIS VASE IS REALLY OF EXCEPTIONAL QUALITY AND BEAUTY. THE PICTURE REALLY DIDN'T DO JUSTICE TO THE TRUE ELEGANCE OF THE VASE. I WOULD STRONGLY RECOMMEND THIS LADY'S ART WORKS WITHOUT RESERVATION.
I received the mask ""God of Fertility"" today and it was wonderful. The detail and craftsmanship is beautiful!

Thank you so much! Your work is beautiful, and I am honored to have it in my home.
My compliments, I bought a copper mask named ""Crowned Ai Apaec"" and it is wonderfull. I have to say also that the choice was also very difficult because every mask or plate is very very nice. Thanks Andrea.
My recent purchases (which will not be my last) indicate how much I love the articles made by this talented artist. Highly recommended.

Your plate has a place of honor where everyone that sees it comments on it's beauty. Thank you! I will seek you out again in the future.
The masks are truly stunning. Excellent craftsmanship. Fine detail work. They cast a rather mysterious aura. Fun and a bit whimsical . . .
I just received the extraordinary sun god from Ana Maria. It is one of the most beautiful pieces in my collection of suns from around the world. I am in admiration of the artistry and vision demonstrated in her work.

Thank you for my wonderful warrior mask. There's a little corner of Minnesota that now holds a bit of our neighbors to the South. Each time I look at the plaque, I also see your beautiful face.
I’m writing to thank Ana Maria Enciso for making such lovely copper artwork. The sun god mask is wonderful. I gave it to a friend for Christmas, and she absolutely loved it. Novica and artists like Enciso have made Christmas shopping so much more fun, and my gifts this year have been so much more unusual. Thank you.
Thank you, Ana Maria. I received Portada del Sol: Inti. It's beautifully done, I am very thankful to you. I am also thrilled to see in a book I just received, a photo of the real Portada del Sol -- I said to myself, ""I have that!"" Yours is remarkably like the original carving. Keep working! You're doing a wonderful job. Thanks, Diane
Excellent craftsmanship, extremely pleased with product.

I collect masks. It was by accident that I found this site. Ana Maria Enciso's masks were unusual as I didn't have anything like it in my collection. The three masks I ordered were beautifully packaged and the craftmanship was superior. I will continue to purchase from Novica for all of my masks from now on.
The brass masks are beautiful!! I've have never seen such unique work of art. The masks are now displayed in our family room together with Senor Quinto's gourd mirror.
The masks are great. I love them even more than what the picture showed.
I absolutely adore the Ai Apaec Sun God mask I ordered. It is of superb quality and the depth of expression is wonderful. YOUR artwork has inspired me to research these fascinating masks. Thank you so very much. I shall be ordering more!
I really LOVE the fascinating Inti, Sun God mask by Ana Maria Encisco! I have placed it above a sunny window where it seems to send out rays to the entire room! I definitely plan to start a collection of these boldly designed and colorful and bronze and copper masks. I have a perfect warmly colored , bright room for them where they will be absolutely striking! Many thanks and best wishes! Lori
