An excellent Chimu zoomorphic bottle from Peru, ca. 1100 – 1450 AD. This fine blackware vessel is 8” high and depicts a skate, with the characteristic gills carved into the front of the chamber. Note the way the artist added adornos along the bridge of the spout, in an effort to mimic the thorn-like bumps found along the back and tail of skates. Rare marine motif, intact, with good mineral deposits.
