19th C. Amazonian Shipibo Polychrome Vessel

Upper / Western Amazon Basin, Ucayali River, Peru, Shipibo people, ca. late 19th to early 20th century CE. A globular vessel with a dark, earthy red, flat base below a creamy color decorated with labyrinthine lines and a slightly flared, rolled rim. Shipibo vessels are visually distinctive and instantly recognizable. They are also the result of a tempering technology that is millennia old and allowed them to create some of the largest, thinnest-walled vessels produced in the New World. These vessels are made by Shipibo women, as are their fantastic textiles. Size: 7.4" W x 6.25" H (18.8 cm x 15.9 cm)

Condition: Wear commensurate with age and some areas of paint loss. Nice preservation of motifs on much of the piece. Old collection number on base.

Provenance: private New York, New York, USA collection; ex-private lifetime collection of Dr. Saul Tuttman and Dr. Gregory Siskind, New York, New York, USA
