Site:  Nasca
Clados Number:  270
Culture:  Nasca
Description:  double spout bottle, ID number missing, M.N.A.A.H.-Lima.
Chronological Era:  Intermediate Period (EIP), Nasca 4 Phase.
Iconographic Features:  a painting that shows only the upper half of the (Seated/Standing?) Anthropomorphic Mythical Being. It holds a trophy head and a human of which only the part from the waist down to the feet is shown. It wears a headdress that shows the Pampas Cat and a serpent with trophy heads attached to the border of the snake body. Eye-markings in the form of fishes, shoulders replaced by representations of the Killer Whale Mythical Being. Arms depicted with faces enclosed. Bands depicted with fishes enclosed emanate from the body of the main figure. Fishes generally indicate water while the black background might indicate the night. An interpretation of the main figure as a goddess of water/fertility and night seems likely. A full-figure version of this being was published by Tello in 1959, lam. LXXXVI.
