Description: A large stirrup spout vessel painted with four undulating serpents facing upwards, one in each quadrant in red/brown on a beige ground. The serpent represents rebirth, the shedding of its skin repeating as much as four times, perhaps for each season. Stirrup spout vessels were used to hold ceremonial corn beer and the spout allowed the air to enter one channel while the liquid was able to pour through the other channel.

Condition Report: Very good, intact and no in-painting

Notes: 90078

Dimensions: Height 11.5"

Date: Peru, Moche, North Coast, c. AD 450 - 550
