|An awesome Lambayeque (Sican) whistle vessel from Peru, ca. 700 – 1300 AD. This complex creation is 7-3/4” high and portrays an individual standing atop a large pile of vessels, most likely stacked ollas containing chicha for a celebration. He is wearing a huge headdress associated with the solar deity and is holding a pair of people under his arms. Painted overall with the characteristic cream slip and highlighted with red stripes. In superb condition, with nice dendrites and functional whistle.|
