Authentic Pre-Columbian Polychrome Female Cuchimilco / Stargazer Artifact from the Central Coast of Peru. This vessel from the Chancay Culture dates from the Intermediate Period circa 800-1200 CE (AD). Charming figure in overall cream with hues of blackish brown. Female figure stands on thick, tubular legs and gently flared feet. The figure presents nude with dark brown bands accentuating her knees, chest, arms, and cheeks as she holds both arms out at her sides. Her conical head features protruding ovoid eyes, a bulbous nose with impressed nostrils, perky ears, and a segmented headband stretching across the front of the brow, all beneath a beehive-style cap or coiffure. Size: 7.6" W x 11.375" H (19.3 cm x 28.9 cm). Unique authentic artifact from ancient Peru.

Condition: Professional repair and restoration to hip and upper thigh of proper left leg as well as right ear and areas of right side of head, with nearly invisible resurfacing and overpainting along new material and break lines; more repairs and restoration may be present but is very difficult to discern.
