Description
In the art of the stirrup vessels, Moche potters captured scenes of daily life, including the most intimate. There is much disputed about what these erotic vessels signify. Some believe them to be reflections of religious rituals, others see them as celebrations of life's sensual pleasures, still others as icons of fertility. Even in the modern age, they startle us with their direct approach to sex, their unblushing depiction of human relations. Certainly they remind us that the fundametals of human existence change little with time. - (PF.2043)
