An excellent Nazca jar from Peru, ca. 200 – 400 AD. This beautiful polychrome vessel with flared rim is 4-1/2” in diameter and depicts a series of the “tied bags”, which are believed to contain a shaman’s paraphernalia, a rare motif. Intact, with vivid paint and good mineral deposits.

Cf. Proulx “Sourcebook of Nasca Iconography”, page 175.
