An extraordinarily and expressive wooden Moche III captive prisoner. Uniquely made from a piece of the Aphandra (mastodon palm) tree into a human Calero (lime container). The artisan no doubt had remarkable skills in exhibiting knowledge by using simplistic means. Hands are bound by rope behind his back. His facial features are remarkable. Almond shaped eyes made of shell with purple spondylus pupils. Curled copper wired whiskers are also attached to his face and nacre (mother of pearl) applied all around the neckline. Head is removable which exposes the attached copper spatula and hollowed out lower body.
