The vessel comes from the 1876 Peruvian collection of Władysław Kluger. The hollow, zoomorphic figurine most likely represents a llama. It was made of a ceramic material, then coated with a light-coloured slip and white paint, which is most noticeable on the muzzle of the animal. The surface of the vessel is matt and smooth. A carefully shaped head with an open mouth rests on the short neck of the animal. On its head there are preserved fragments of a harness passing through the nose to the neck and under the chin of the presumed llama. The harness is made of a white and brown woollen rope. The fan-shaped spout was placed on the back of the animal. The animal’s body is painted in a pattern of circles, with the spout painted with irregular stripes.
