Gravefield I, Oldest Part
|Credit Line:||William Pepper Peruvian Expedition; Max Uhle, subscription of Phebe A. Hearst, 1897|
In the shape of a cat with the foot restored. Three legs
Narrow-necked jar/bottle with an effigy-zoomorphic body, tapered neck, rounded rim, 1 strap handle extending from the neck to the body, and a footed base. The vessel is shaped like a jaguar with open mouth and four clawed feet (only 3 extant). The jaguar is painted white with geometric designs in red and purple?. The vessel was likely fired in an oxidizing atmosphere as the ceramic paste is orange in color. The catalogue number is written on the interior of the vessel and black ink on the side of the neck reads: "942."
