Description
The art of Ancient Peru reveals a civilization in touch with nature. It sometimes views the world with unblinking realism, sometimes with a sense of humor, but always with an attitude of wonder. This charming vessel depicts a monkey with comic face, seated in an almost human fashion. It seems to gently remind the viewer that we are all creatures of the earth, no matter how many layers of culture we heap upon ourselves. As we delight in its lively beauty, we share our pleasures with people who lived centuries ago. - (PF.1875)
