Pre-Columbian, Peru, Lambayeque / Sican culture, ca. 800-1000 CE. The Sican people made significant technical advances in metalwork and focussed their artistic proclivities in this medium. Archaeologists have uncovered great numbers of goblets, dishes, masks, and ornaments - so many that they believe the Sican developed an organized industry in metalwork. Most of their works are cast or repousse gold or silver pieces, and the Sican were also adept at working with bronze. This representation ...

Pre-Columbian, Peru, Chancay culture, ca. 1000-1500 CE.

Chancay figural ceramics were usually fabricated with molds and stamps and painted with a limited color scheme of dark brown-black on white; however, this example departs from Chancay mass production and at times less-refined aesthetic.
