Title: 1956A385 Whistling Vessel
Description: 1956A385
Whistling Vessel, 200-100 BC
This is a fairly realistic representation of a tropical screech owl. Owls had many associations in ancient Peru especially with warriors, sacrifice and shamanistic ceremonies. These dark associations perhaps arose because of their nocturnal habits.
