Nazca Vase with Dancing Male

Human representation is a dominant and varied theme in later Nazca pottery. Men and women in stiff poses are shown individually and in groups. These tall sculpted vases offer interesting detail relating to ornate Nazca textiles and clthing. From Nazca, Peru, circa 500 CE. (National Museum of Scotland, Edinburgh, UK)
