Description:
Double -spout-and bridge vessel (blackware).

Label Text:
Ancient Americans did not use the potter’s wheel, but created masterful ceramic vessels through a variety of techniques, including coil-and-slab construction and hand modeling. The Moche culture of north coastal Peru and their descendants, the Lambayeque people, were especially sophisticated and mass-produced elegant vessels like this one using multipart clay molds. Excavations at urban sites in the Lambayeque region illustrate the complexity of these societies, and have revealed ceramic, metal, and weaving workshops.
