CULTURE: Chimu ORIGIN: Peru / North Coast AGE: Ca. 1100 - 1470 A. D. SIZE: 5 1/2" in length by 6" IN height DESCRIPTION: An absorbing and fascinating blackware vessel in the form of an ankle wearing a shoe. This is an atypical vessel in that it is totally realistic and lifelike.It is particularly remarkable in that it not only shows the bands around the upper foot...it actually shows the tread on the bottom. It is the most realistic piece from the period that I have ever personally seen. Chimu molded wares are often a bit boring since so many copies of the same artifact were produced...this is the exception! PROVENANCE: A New York Gallery.
