Seller: rodrogrs (830) 100%, Location: Merrick, New York, Ships to: Worldwide, Item: 123727249790 Here is an AUTHENTIC blackware cube-shaped stirrup-spout vessel surmounted by a seated cross-legged dignitary wearing an elaborate headdress, resting an object (game? instrument? ritual implement?) on his lap; a long-tailed smiling monkey is seated at the base of the rising spout. This delightful simian ornament reflects the stylistic influence of the coeval Chimú culture in the region. Later Chimú ceramics employed both iconography and forms derived from Moche antecedents. Although this vessel possesses several Chimú diagnostics such as the dark color and the simian ornament, one essential Chimú characteristic is notably missing; the lower stirrup arc is rounded, not squared, pointing a late Moche chronology influenced by the incipient Chimú culture. 8.25” (20.9 cm) high x 4” (10.1 cm) wide x 6.25" (15.8 cm) front-to-back..
