Here you find a wonderfully preserved Llama effigy from Peru. Dates from circa 450 to 550 AD. This stirrup vessel has a deeply burnished brown red colour with beautiful patina. The saddlebag and facial features highlighted in white paint. Very vivid features are found on this invaluable animal from the Andes. Measures in at 9 ½ inches wide by 7 ¾ inches high (larger than the average piece).

Cf. "Ancestors of the Inca", National Museum of Archaeology, Anthropology and History in Lima, Peru.
