One spout and bridge. Pachacamac Griffin figure which represents more than one animal (puma, jaguar, bird, fish, more?); Atarco Style

Narrow necked jug with a globular body, tapered neck, missing rim, 1 hollow handle from the neck to the body, and a flat base. No molded/modeled additions. There is a hole in the handle, possibly a whistle. The vessel is slipped and painted with two Pachacamac griffins in red, purple, green, cream, black, and white. There appears to be a burnished finish on the exterior. The vessel was likely fired in an oxidizing atmosphere as the ceramic paste is orange in color. The catalogue number is written on the object in black ink on the bottom of the base. Black ink on the bottom of the base reads: "802."
