A lovely Moche IV Fineline bottle from Peru, ca. 450 – 550 AD. It is 9-1/8” high and features a scene with mythological warriors. An Eagle Warrior and a Rodent Warrior are presenting a decapitated human head to the Strombus Monster. All three figures are painted in intricately executed detail. A small animal stands atop the broad false spout. Intact, with good paint and strong mineral deposits.
