Lot 0198 Details

Upper/Western Amazon Basin, Ucayali River, Peru, Shipibo people, ca. mid 20th century CE. A wide, shallow ceramic vessel on a flat base with a flared waist, a tapered neck, and a wide rim. White, tan, red, and dark brown pigment creates intricately painted geometric designs in two registers around the body. Shipibo vessels are visually distinctive and instantly recognizable, the result of a tempering technology that is millennia old, allowing for some of the largest, thinnest-walled vessels produced in the New World. These vessels are made by Shipibo women in a style that grew out of the pre-Columbian Marajoara. Size: 12.75" W x 6.4" H (32.4 cm x 16.3 cm)
