Guest Book
An excellent Nazca olla from Peru, ca. 200 – 400 AD. This fine globular vessel is 5-1/2” in diameter and depicts worms attacking six peppers portrayed with anthropomorphized faces. They are painted in black, orange, red and yellow over white slip. Intact, with vivid paint and good mineral deposits.

Cf. Proulx “Sourcebook of Nasca Iconography”, page 162.
