Why this is a
Masterpiece

Chosen and explained by Yuji SEKI "Supporting Local People by Archaeology". I have been excavating temples of this period for nearly 30 years, and had an archaeological site museum constructed to display excavated materials, and am now supporting the local people directly involved in operating the museum.

History of the Object
In the Formative Period (2,500 B.C. to around the Christian era) when the base of the ancient Andean civilization was established, large-scale temples were constructed, and geometric patterns and animals were depicted by relief, incised lines and painting in colors on the buildings and potteries. Notably, many potteries such as bottles or jars resembling stirrups from a riding saddle were produced in the northern regions.
