Pre-Columbian ~ INCA ~ Zoomorphic Globular VESSEL
$ 600

This is a Pre-Columbian INCA Zoomorphic Globular VESSEL from Peru, 1000 - 1300 A.D. It measures about 4 1/4" X 5 1/4" X 5 1/2" ( 10.8 cm X 13.4 cm X 14.0 cm ). The vessel depicts a monkey with jaguar skin (?). The Inca Civilization dominated The Andes from around 1438 to 1533. The Inca Empire was known as The Tawantinsuyu or The Land of the Four Regions. Inca cities were remarkably built with precise stonework. Agriculture was not only practiced on the valleys, but also on the mountains and hills, known as terrace farming. Machu Picchu is the symbol of the Inca Empire, located at 2,430 meters (8,000 ft) above sea level. Today, Machu Picchu is considered one of the Wonders of the Modern World. Besides being magnificent crafters and potters, they excelled in metallurgy and were successful brain surgeons.
