Painted bottle. Early Nasca. Ceramic. 19,5 x 16 cm (INC-MNAAHP, C-10012)


Painted on this bridge-handled Nasca bottle is a condor, a bird that held an important position among the mythical creatures of this society. Similar motifs are found embroidered on many Paracas Necrópolis textiles, further proof of the connection that no doubt existed between the Paracas and early Nasca cultures.
