Abstract:

This monochromatic ceramic Chimu pot (6 x 7 inches) decorated with figure of a monkey wearing a helmet interacting with a crab, is a double-spout whistling vessel. It likely consists of two chambers with their spouts linked together. As fluid rocks back and forth between the two chambers, air is forced out of the spout, producing a whistle or sound reminiscent of labored breathing. Likely meant for use as a funerary object. The term "Chimu" refers to a rather general art style of the Chimor Kingdom, created on the north coast of Peru between A.D. 900 and 1532. The style is loosely defined because it includes a great deal of regional and local variation.
