Shipobo Ceramic Pot, Peru

Shipibo-Conibo Peoples, Peru
Mid. 20th C.
15″ w x 7.5 h
Clay, Natural Pigments

With its natural pigments and bold geometric design, the effect is a striking, handsome pot. This vessel was produced to contain food. The bowl would be settled in the earth up to its widest point to keep its contents cool. This is an excellent example from our extensive collection of Shipibo vessels.
