Tacitas is a collection of pieces with different bowl shapes, made of stone by the Chilean Bravo! studio. The collection integrates important conceptual significance, a representation of the old Chilean culture expressed through a contemporary language. As relics of some extinct cultures, in Chile are encountered big large cliffs with many holes in them, vestiges that have inspired Tacitas collection. The archaeologists have determined that these holes in the cliffs had a practical sense, being used for some grain grinding or polishing, and a religious sense, represented by sacred rituals through which the ancient populations were trying to get in touch with the gods. The realization of the collection involved a combination of advanced technology with crafted techniques. There were used different kinds of rocks, the natural element being represented by the outside of the vessels, while the human footprint makes its presence felt through the polished inside.
