An excellent Chimu Toyo effigy vessel from Peru, ca. 1100 – 1450 AD. This choice grayware example is 7-1/4” high, 7-1/2” long and depicts a type of guitarfish indigenous to the waters off Peru. It is nicely detailed, with the mouth and gills molded on the underside. In excellent condition, with strong mineral deposits.
