Details

Gleaming golden color defines the intricate Raimondi stela. Named for Antonio Raimondi, who discovered it, it depicts a deity from the Chavin culture known as the smiling god. The original, incised composition embodies duality within a figure, in this case an agricultural and fertility deity with splayed taloned feet. Depicted in a vase by Ana Maria Enciso, the deity holds two tall staffs. The original is housed in the National Museum of Anthropology and Archaeology in Lima. The vessel also depicts a ceremonial tumi blade and the deity Wiracocha.

"Big, bold, eye-catching piece!"

icon star icon star icon star icon star icon star

Larger than imagined, this sassy decorative vase boasts a wonderful green patina, contrasted by highlights of shiny polished copper and bronze and embellished with semi-precious stones. The whole thing is finished with a protective glaze which gives it a gorgeous shine (you can hardly see it in the photos).
