A leaping feline spirit God is depicted in bold, expressionistic style on either side of this superb pot. The rich colors are those of the earth: ochre, sienna, buff. Nazca deities were drawn mostly from the plant and animal worlds, and were associated with the fertility of nature and the cult of the trophy head. Though the complex iconography is mysterious, the vivid impression the vessel creates is immediate and lasting. - (K.088a)
