An excellent Moche III bottle from Peru, ca. 200 – 450 AD. It is 8-1/2” high and is decorated with a pair of nicely detailed lizards painted in red over cream slip. A lovely representation of the male-female duality motif in an unusual depiction, as the lizards are more commonly portrayed in vertical form. In excellent condition, with strong paint and mineral deposits.
