pre-columbian terracotta heads & figurines own collection
My own collection. A part of the Pre-columbian Maya heads and figurines came from a collection from the Dutch adventurer/explorer prof. dr. Anthonie Stolk. He claimed he had discovered an ancient city of the Chibcha indians in the Amazon jungle.
Lambayeque brownware vessel. Naymlap libation vessel from the North Coast of Peru. "Lord Naymlap" is the mythological founder of the pre-Chimu dynasty of the Sican-Lambayeque culture of Northern Peru. He is identified as having a human face with slanted eyes and tattoos. He is often surrounded by other figures representing his descendants - the "children of Naymlap". Incised lines and dots under his eyes are tears; symbolic of rain.
