Description: Fired clay. Pre-Columbian America, Chimu, approx. around 1200

Interesting three-dimensional piece, presumably originating from a larger vessel and the uppermost part formed resp. handles. The bird has an ovoid body, the long neck forms an arch and the head with big round eyes and long beak fit closely on the back. Wings are suggested, on the back upper body are two elevations, like human feet with soles facing upward. Blackish toning, age characteristics, the bird is completely preserved while the base surface is fragmentary. On a black wooden base. 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.
LENGTH 15 CM
Former collection of Lüders, Stuttgart, acquired around 1970, 1992 Galeria Peruana
