Motché Exclusive

HOMAGE TO THE JEWELRY OF ANCIENT PERU
  • Dress to Kill

    A COLLECTION INSPIRED BY A MOCHICA PRINCE

  • In 2008, the world discovers the funerary chamber of the Lord of Ucúpe. The luxurious splendor of its sophisticated jewelry offerings imbues these Mochica style adornments with the imposing strength of a mythological art which can be disturbing at times, and which is associated with a complex political and religious tradition. These treasures, inaccessible to the ordinary people of the time, reflect the powerful position of a distinguished leader who was associated with the supreme ritual of sacrifice. On the occasion of their exhibition at the Museum of Ethnology of Geneva, Motché Paris-Lima has recreated this sense of ritual, in a collection based on the adornments of a Lord who was literally "dressed to kill".
