A great Ica polychrome bowl from Peru, ca. 900 - 1500 AD. This rare, large example is 8" in diameter, has a convex bottom and is decorated with the traditional geometric designs characteristic of the type. Intact, with strong paint and extensive mineral deposits.

Cf. Donnan "Ceramics of Ancient Peru", page 104 - 105 for similar examples from the Fowler Museum and the Museum of Natural History.
