Seller: phyrexian36 (346) 100%, Location: Seattle, Washington, Ships to: US, Item: 291953855739 The Moche were a mysterious civilization who ruled the northern coast of Peru beginning two thousand years ago. They built huge pyramids made of millions of mud bricks and created an extensive network of aqueducts. They were also pioneers of metal working techniques like gilding and soldering, which enabled them to created extraordinarily intricate jewelry and artifacts. Due to the lack of a written language, little was known about the Moche civilization until the 1980's when archeologists began uncovering monuments and tombs containing detailed murals, and incredible ceramics that depicted detailed scenes of hunting, fighting, sacrifice, ceremonies, and explicit sexual encounters. Moche pottery is some of the most varied in the world. The use of mold technology is evident. This would have enabled the mass production of certain forms. But Moche ceramics vary widely in shape and theme, with most important social activities documented in pottery, including war, metalwork, weaving and sex. Traditional north coast Peruvian ceramic art uses a limited palette, relying primarily on red and white; fineline painting, fully modeled clay, veristic figures, and stirrup spouts. Moche ceramics created between 150–800 AD epitomize this style. At least 500 Moche ceramics have sexual themes. This reproduction is 5.25" long, 2" wide and 2" tall. It is made of clay and is quite heavy for its size. It's the perfect gift for a new mother or anyone interested in archaeology or Pre-Columbian civilizations!
