This three-coloured bowl on an annular foot, decorated with so-called negative painting, using wax as a reserve material, belongs to the pre-Columbian Carchi-Nariño highland culture from the border of today's Ecuador and Colombia, dating back to around 700 or 800 AD and 1500 AD.more
This three-coloured bowl on an annular foot, decorated with so-called negative painting, using wax as a reserve material, belongs to the pre-Columbian Carchi-Nariño highland culture from the border of today's Ecuador and Colombia, dating back to around 700 or 800 AD and 1500 AD. The area where they were used is in the neighbouring provinces: Carchi in northern Ecuador and Nariño in southwestern Colombia. This culture, due to the use of a particular decorative technique on ceramic products, is also often called Negativo del Carchi or Negativo del Nariño, that is the negative culture of Carchi or Nariño.
Among the vessels made, a very characteristic group consists of cups on high bases, called compoteras, with almost standardized, in terms of size, and shape bowls on ring-shaped feet. Most of the vessels were decorated unilaterally, but there were also some adorned both from the outside and the inside. The vessels were covered with geometric patterns consisting of parallel lines, intersecting patterns, grids, diamond shapes, trapezoidal figures and zoomorphic figures.
The bowl from the museum collection is three-coloured, decorated mainly on the inside with a distinct negative pattern, created by using wax and liquid coloured clays. The surface of the bowl is divided into four main side fields, trapezoidal in shape, filled with two pairs of alternating patterns, composed of geometrical motifs in the form of vertical stripes and zoomorphic forms—in the form of monkeys facing each other with long curled tails. The outer side of the bowl is only decorated with four pairs of cream-coloured vertical stripes.
