DFC's chaquira sculptures are created with traditional Huichol artisans who cover forms with a layer of beeswax, into which they press intricate glass-bead designs. Lil' Emperor is part of DFC's 2010 Chinoseria Collection, and is inspired by China's last empress, the dowager Cixi, represented in imperial yellow and auspicious black. Each chaquira sculpture comes with it's own hand-made glass presentation box. 


Each sculpture around 7" tall / 17cm. Presentation boxes around 8x8' / 20x20cm.
