Mini Nazca Vessel


This cute miniature stands approximately 4 inches tall, 3 1/4 inches wide.  One side depicts a cat-like warrior with protruding tongue and holding weapons in each hand.  The body extends to the opposite side where a face is depicted between two legs, possibly representative of birth.  Appears intact with no restoration.  Pitting to bottom and bridge.  Scuffing on paint with minor losses.  An outstanding piece.  Circa, 100 to 700 CE.  From a private German collection.
