A lovely Lambayeque (Sican) bottle from Peru, ca. 700 – 1300 AD. It is 6-1/4” high and depicts the primary deity Naymlap with tears streaming down his face, representing rain. He is flanked by a pair of attendants, typically identified as his children, peering out from the inside of ceremonial huts. A nicely detailed example with good mineral deposits.

Cf. Kauffman-Doig, "Empire of Mystery", page 135.
