Pre-Columbian, Peru, Lambayeque / Sican culture, ca. 800-1000 CE. The Sican people made significant technical advances in metalwork and focussed their artistic proclivities in this medium. Archaeologists have uncovered great numbers of goblets, dishes, masks, and ornaments - so many that they believe the Sican developed an organized industry in metalwork. Most of their works are cast or repousse gold or silver pieces, and the Sican were also adept at working with bronze. This representation ...click for details

Northern Peru, Moche IV, Ca 600 CE. I am not sure what drugs the artist of this piece was on when he created it, but I think I will try to avoid them in the future! Used as a canteen to hold water and spirits - painted on each side with a very bizarre morphed creature that is part feline, part saurian and with a snake for the tail thrown in for added affect. Very interestingly, on one side there are scurrying insects below the creature, along with desert cactus. Large vessel measuring 12&qu ...click for details
