|A rare Lambayeque-Huari figural vessel from northern Peru, ca. 1000 AD. This highly unusual example is 7-3/4” high and depicts a Lambayeque (Sican) ruler, but all of the designs representing his mantle are clearly of Huari origin. Recent discoveries at the Cerro Patapo site have shown an extensive Huari city, with carbon dating of organic artifacts proving Huari occupation until about 1100, greatly expanding their cultural time horizon. This fine polychrome vessel dates from their later period in the Chiclayo region. In excellent condition, with strong mineral deposits.|
