The exhibit comes from the 1876 Peruvian collection of Władysław Kluger and was created during the period of Chimú culture. The vessel consists of two separate pieces, whose bodies were conjoined with a wide tunnel. They also feature a common handle connecting their necks. One of the vessels is completely closed; its spout was adorned with an anthropomorphic bust. The neck of the other piece is tall and narrow. The anthropomorphic figure made in a low relief technique features additional hands, in which an unspecified item, presumably a rope or a stick, is held. The abnormally large head of the figure was topped with a tall headgear split in the middle, imitating two horns. The entire vessel was decorated on the front and aft parts of the body with the slip dotting technique. Moreover, a large cat, probably a jaguar, was depicted in relief on the outer side of both bodies.
