Guest Book
An exceptional Moche IV figure from Peru, ca. 450 – 550 AD. It is 8” high and depicts an elaborately attired individual clad in layered garments. He is portrayed either playing a small drum with a stick in his right hand or stirring something in a container. The way the arms come out from under the mantle, leaving empty sleeves at the sides, is a masterful bit of sculpting. The wrapped headdress is secured with a bow tied at the back of the neck and a bulging coca bag dangles down his back. In exceptional condition, with just a bit of rim wear.
