Description
This splendid vessel balances a sensitive observation of nature with an appreciation for formal design. Four geometrically adorned lizards touch the tips of their tails and chase each other in a perpetual swirling dance around the sides of the pot. The lower half of the vessel and the handle bear traces of copper, which suggests that it may have been decorated with foil at one time. This is truly a superb example of Moche art at its best. - (K.082)
