Description
The most startling quality about Moche erotic art is its directness. Free from hypocrisy, with neither blush nor apology, it depicts men and women engaged in varied sexual activity. It seems to say, "This is part of life, timeless and undeniable." The progress of civilization has not changed this most essential of human pleasures. It unites all cultures and people through the ages. To revile it is to deny the very fabric of life. To accept it in the honest spirit in which it was created is to be accepting of ourselves. - (PF.1883)
