The Moche were known for their fine animal representations.
This darkware vessel is early Moche and demonstrates the transition from earlier North Coast cultures, which used smudge firing and post-fire pigmentation, to Moche times, which saw the adoption of new, higher-oxygen firing technologies and the use of slips applied before firing.
