A fine Moche IV molded bottle from Peru, ca. 450 – 550 AD. This lovely zoomorphic vessel is 8-1/2” high and features four lizards atop the chamber. They are molded in relief, connected at the tips of the tails and set off with kaolin pigment. The flared base is decorated with a band of traditional wave designs. Nice example with good mineral deposits.
