The Chimu people (a.d. 900-1450) of Peru produced distinctive blackware pottery. The vessels were created by smoldering flames during the firing and then buffing the surface to produce a dull sheen. Many of the pottery forms were adapted from the Moche culture, which preceded the Chimu in the Andean region of Peru. Vessels were mass-produced through the use of molds. Chimu pieces were rarely painted; decoration usually took the form of sculptural additions or carved forms, particularly of animals such as cats, dogs, frogs, and birds. One type of pot originally developed by the Chimu culture is the double-chambered "whistling" pot, which consists of two chambers with their spouts linked together by a horizontal tube through which liquid could pass. As the fluid was rocked back and forth between the two cavities, labored breathing sounds similar to those of the dying were produced. Because of this association with death, many believe that this popular form of vessel was used as a funerary object. Condition: A portion of the Birds Beak is missing, Provenance: Colombia
