Handmade in Peru, a ceramic Incan votive in the form of a camelid animal.

This ornament forms part of a range accompanying the British Museum exhibition Peru: a journey in time.

The ceramic ornament is made by artist Ynocencio Ccahuana and is based on Incan zoomorphic votives, which were used as religious totems. This ornament likely represents a llama or alpaca, and features small divots on its body which would have been used to collect small offerings. The Incan Empire was the largest civilisation of Pre-Colombian South America, and produced exquisite art, including ceramics, textiles and architecture.

The ornament is treated with a special finish which makes it appear as the original pottery. Please note, due to the handmade nature of this piece, the colour and shape may vary slightly.

A subtle ornament that celebrates Peru’s cultural history.
