Item Details

Information:

  • Material: Pottery




Here is a splendid blackware vessel with an incised linear-decorated strap handle connecting body and spout.  

The rising cylinder spout is embellished with the head of Naylamp, supreme Sicán deity, who wears an ornamented collar

and is accompanied by two large, headdress-wearing monkeys. The tapered pedestal base is encircled by an incised

geometric repeat-motif design with traces of red pigment.



6.5” (15.8 cm) high x 4.25” (10.7 cm) long x 3.75" (9.5 cm) wide.

Despite several insignificant chips, this desirable antiquity is in excellent overall condition.

CAVEAT EMPTOR: The prospective buyer is advised to acquire New World antiquities ONLY from recognized Pre-Columbian Art specialists and pay a legitimate price for authentic antiquities with legal provenance and bona-fide guarantees of authenticity. Keep in mind that a “Certificate of Authenticity” is only as valid as the issuer’s credentials and expertise. Unrealistically low prices for forgeries, reproductions, illegal or mis-attributed artifacts offered by uninformed or venal vendors are ultimately not bargains at all.
