Guest Book

A special Nazca bowl from Peru, ca. 200 – 400 AD. It is 8” in diameter and features a band of ten symbols depicting maize as a stylized representation of the Corn God. The interior of this thin-walled beauty retains some of the linear décor, a very rare feature. In excellent condition, with vivid paint and good mineral deposits.

Museum deaccession.

Cf. Proulx “Sourcebook of Nasca Iconography”, page 166.
