Intricate Details and Artistic Narrative of this

Chimú Double Stirrup Vessel

 

Pre-Columbian Andean communities utilized decorations to convey religious sentiments, express devotion to gods, showcase individual or community identity, and symbolize personal values and beliefs. Animals held particular importance in Andean mythology and were commonly featured in their decorative expressions.
This is a lovely Chimú black-ware mold-made double stirrup vessel with a bridge handle. The body has decorations and features a crescent headdress figure tethering two llamas or deer surrounded by dots in relief. The design alternates and repeats around the bottle’s circumference—measuring 7.5″ in height.

Condition: Rim and surface chip on the lower portion of the body, otherwise in excellent state. Mineral deposits throughout.

Provenance: Ex R. Saint, Bridgeport Ct.

Price $465
