Pre-Columbian era, Moche culture, Moche phase II to IV, c. 200-600AD, Northern Peru.

A charming mold-made pottery female figure in the form of a seated captive with rope or wide band around waist. She's naked with bent long arms, hands holding her belly, round small breasts, her genitalia evident, rounded shoulders, and a squared head. A face with wide triangular nose, almond-shaped open eyes, small mouth, and perky ears. The Moche civilization (also known as the Mochicas) flourished in northern Peru from about 200 to 700 AD, centuries before the rise of the Incas. The Moche are particularly noted for their elaborately painted ceramics, gold work, monumental constructions (huacas), and irrigation systems. 

Good condition. Chips in the feet and nose. Hole. Smoothed patina and softening to some finer details. Traces of black and yellowish cream color. Age-related heavy wear and encrusted deposits. Size approx. 7,4cm x 5,3cm x 3,5cm.

Provenance: Private collection from Canada.
