Guest Book
An excellent Inca figural bottle from Peru, ca. 1300 – 1500 AD. This superbly detailed example is 7” high and features two fishermen paddling a reed boat surrounded by fish and birds. These boats were used for fishing and to travel to offshore ceremonial sites located on small islands. This scene is depicted inside a large fish that is surrounded by the larger wave representing the Lord of the Seas. In excellent condition with heavy mineral deposits.

Cf. Domingo “Arqueologia Andina Peru”, page 231.
