Description
The Chavin culture had a great appreciation for the natural world, which is expressed in their art. This splendid vessel strikes a lovely balance between naturalism and abstraction, depicting the textured skin of the cherimoya fruit as if it were being peeled away. To hold this vessel is to be aware of contrast: the modern hand delights in the alternating bands of rough and smooth just as the ancient hand did so long ago. - (K.070)
