Description: Fired clay. Pre-Columbian America, Chimu, around 1000

Rare and characterful vessel with accentuated funnel-shaped opening emerging from a stocky head. Big eyes, no neck, however over-sized breasts in contrast to thin, delicate limbs, particularly legs. On the back is a large hump, thus a deformity, which was nevertheless seen as a symbol of luck. The confident facial expression is certainly in this context. Black coloring, age characteristics, some chipping on the rand opening. The Chimu Culture was situated in the North of Peru from mid 13th to late 15th century, then the royal empire passed on to the reign of the Inca.
HEIGHT 22 CM, WIDTH 17 CM
Former collection of Lüders, Stuttgart, acquired around 1970, after Galeria Peruana, 1992
