With vivid, sometimes startling detail, Moche portrait vases depict the Ancient Peruvian aristrocracy. This splendid vase shows a man with a determined look on his face. His brows are knit in concentration, his stare is direct, his mouth radiates authority. We have no trouble believing that he was a leader among men. The dotted cap he wears suggest that he might have been a warrior. The artist has perfectly captured not only the features of the sitter, but also his powerful personality. - (PF.1861)
