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.
