Images 1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6

Cupisnique Style, Chavin Culture of Peru, c. 1200-200 B.C.

$1,650

P277 A large and scarce Chavin human effigy stirrup bottle. This interesting example measures a large 10 1/2 inches tall with the squatty round body having a diameter of approximately 8 inches.

Vessel depicts a seated man, the head connecting to the spout, the legs curving in low relief, and applied arms with the hands held against an incised necklace. In the center of the chest is an impressed circle with incised designs, possibly a pendant, and on backside of the bottle are four incised vertical panels.

Bottle is in excellent condition with chipping to the left arm, a slight nick at the rim, some light surface erosion, pitting, and a very light surface hairline, all very minimal. Vessel is overall in a rusty orange with fire clouding in areas and covered with light dendritic mineral growths.

The coloration, surface quality, and firing technique are strangely similar to higher quality Chorerra culture pottery from Ecuador, from the same time period.

An impressive and unusual example.
