More About this Item


Description: Fired clay. Pre-Columbian America, Recuay, Peru, approx. 6th cent. (time examined)

An remarkably rare vessel. The roundish, to the bottom sharply tapering cup form features semi-plastic relief, which shows two mythical animals. They are called "moon animals" and striking is their similarity to feline predators – wide jaws full of teeth and emblematic erect horns. They are four-clawed with sinewy, curved body featuring striped fur and long tail forming a spiral. On a black base. Recuay was a Peruvian highland culture, existing between 200 BC and 600 and related Moche.
HEIGHT 14,2 CM
Former collection of Dr. Gottfried Eysank of Marienfels, Bad Schönau, Lower Austria, acquired prior to 1970.

Certificate No. 07031111 of TL-age examination in the German Laboratory Kotalla of November 2011 is available
