Polychrome Bowl from Peru Shipibo Indians of Peruvian Amazon Rainforest, Peru; c. 1920s-1930s

The exterior of this bowl (olla) is beautifully painted with traditional Shipibo designs in black and orange against a creamy white background.

Remarkably, it has never been broken and shows no signs of repair or restoration. It probably dates to the 1920s and came to the United Sates in the 1930s.


This museum quality item should be handled with care: it should not be exposed to water or cleaning materials; it has to be carefully cleaned with a dry soft brush.
