A wooden dish featuring four heads carved in relief upon the exterior. The vessel rests on a flat base, and the walls rise upward to a thick rim and a shallow basin. The faces evenly spaced along the vessel and are identical with a stylized visage of a forward-facing man with a rectangular head, short brow, triangular nose, wide eyes, and rounded ear ornaments. These faces represent lords, the elite rulers of Huari society. The arid conditions of southern Peru beautifully preserved wooden objects from this culture. Size: 4.5″ diameter x 2.125″ H.
