Rare Carved Chavin Vertebrae

Showing that nothing ever went to waste... Chavin, northern Peru, ca 1000 BC, an incredibly rare carved bone vertebrae. With two distinct masks, one on each side, and almost all other surfaces with some form of carved decoration - all covered in bright red cinnabar. 2"D x 3/4" thick, minor/very expected wear, but still intact and excellent.

Provenance: Ex-private California Collection.

Authenticity Guaranteed
