Seller: dsevveinl (1,086) 100%, Location: Rheinfelden, Ships to: US & many other countries, Item: 123905604928 You are bidding on an almost 2500 year old ceramic vessel of the Chavin culture. Although to this day older cultures have been found on the land of Peru, the Chavin culture has left the most and largest influences on the following cultures. The stirrup vessel is probably also an invention of the Chavin culture. For us today, it is immediately clear what culture this design is from. The handle looks optically massive and is thickly pottery, but the ceramic is feather-light and smooth. Even without a potter's wheel, the workmanship is almost perfect and is absolutely timeless. The ceramic body is decorated with double head snakes, with the heads reminiscent of predator heads rather than snakes. They each form two S shapes, the symbol of fertility, strength and eternal life. The design of the pattern is quite typical of Chavin and runs through almost all found depictions of predators in the Chavin. If you ever visit the cult place of Chavin de Huantar, you will find many such representations and in museum of Chavin de Hunatar too. It is such ceramics that you only really feel and understand when you have them in your hands and strokes the surfaces. The condition is very good for the age. Especially the extraordinary beautiful stylized predator shapes want to have collectors and lovers, because they characterize the Chavin culture! If you hold this pottery in your hands, you can probably understand and understand the slightly higher price. Such a vessel of the founding culture of most pre-Columbian cultures of South America belongs in every collection, one feels and recognizes the mythology of this unique culture, most of its patterns and forms have to do with predators, probably also a tool of rulers and leaders. Anyone who wonders today why the presentation seems so crazy, understands that this was made only under the influence of drugs. Surely, then, the images seemed even more terrifying.Culture: ChavinAge: 2450 years old, TL tested, original Test Document 1992 inclusive!Tall approx.: 8” in Important for collectors who do not know my offers: it gives antiques, where you don't know, it is genuine or new (looks old or is a fake...). Many looks old, but it is? The best way to find out is an independent laboratory substance test. For many collectors is one reason, why they don't make a test, the high price. (In Europe are the cost today ca. 280 Euro / 300USD per test!) Here you get an antique piece inclusive a test (Thermo-Luminescence Analysis Report). For me as seller is this best feeling, because I can give you a really accurately described piece and the guarantee, made in antique times, an antique artisan, from an old long ago bygone culture!Provenance: Collection Moran 1970, Private collection 2019.Can anyone write a COA, a material laboratory test for determining the age is truly something special!
