CHIMU POTTERY TALL FIGURAL BOTTLECa. 900 - 1400 AD DIMENSIONS About 4 1/2" x 2 1/2" x 6 1/2" DESCRIPTION Chimu pottery anthropomorchic long-necked bottle from the Moche Valley of present-day Trujillo, Peru. Squatting dog with a man's head. Heavy rolled lip on the bottle rim. The Chimu Culture was centered on Chimor with the capital city of Chan Chan, a large adobe city in the Moche Valley. The culture arose about 900 AD, succeeding the Moche Culture, and was later conquered by the Inca emperor Topa Inca Yupanqui around 1470, fifty years before the arrival of the Spanish in the region. The Chimú people are best known for their distinctive monochromatic pottery and fine metal working. The pottery is often in the shape of a creature or has a human figure sitting or standing on a cuboid bottle. The shiny black finish of most Chimú pottery was achieved by firing the pottery at high temperatures in a closed kiln, which prevented oxygen from reacting with the clay.CONDITION Overall excellent.
