Simple in form, with elegantly restrained decoration, Chavin vessels appeal as much to modern sensiblities as they no doubt did to the culture that created them. Borrowing freely from nature, the Chavin artists created excitement for the hand as well as the eye. The contrast between the rough, gourd-like areas and the smooth, polished surfaces delights the touch. The bold shape, crafted with a masterly assurance but without a wheel, is timelessly beautiful. As we hold this exquisite vessel today, we share our pleasure with those who first held it centuries ago. - (K.055)
