Moche Decapitator Demons

An excellent Moche III bottle from Peru, ca. 200 450 AD. This finely made vessel is 7-3/4 high and is decorated with a pair of Supernatural Decapitator demons. Each is depicted holding a severed human head in one hand and a curved blade in the other, with a larger tumi incorporated into the body. Many of the physical details are highlighted with fine incising, a rare feature. Intact, with strong mineral deposits and trails.
