Lot 0273 Details

A lovely Moche portrait vessel, c. 100 BC - AD 500, depicting a male with well-modeled features and a wrapped headdress. The eyes are well-formed, and the features look as if they actually represent someone recognizable by those who knew him, even carrying an air of power. H: 11 1/2 in (29.2 cm). A nice example of this distinguished pottery type unique to the Moche culture.
