A fine Gallinazo-Viru warrior vessel from Peru, ca. 1 – 100 AD. It is 8” high and depicts a warrior with club and shield. He is wearing an ornament studded cap and has diamond designs incised on his face. The chambers are decorated with the negative resist painting characteristic of the type.

Cf. Berrin "Ancient Peru", page 92 for the type.
