Collection: Chimu (Chimor) Culture Pre-Columbian Artifact 900 CE to 1470 CE

Ancient Coastal Peru Pre-Columbian Culture known for especially the black-ware type, best known and most common in Peruvian pre-Columbian tradition. Maritime motifs, well represented in Lambayeque tradition, were also prominent in Chimu pottery, including representation of fish, shells, and boats. Some vessels, even though made in molds are well modeled with carefully finished surfaces, implying a considerable investment of time and skill. The black color was achieved by firing the ceramic under conditions of limiting oxygen, thereby generating soot that bound to the vessel surface. The pottery was burnished after firing to produce the shiny black surface. Finally, it is interesting to note that Chimú rulers were themselves collectors of art from other cultures and their palaces were full of niches in which objects and statues were placed for display.
