By the Spanish conquest, the tall wooden cup was called a quero (qero, kero), meaning “wood,” in Quechua. The specialized wood carvers were known as querocamayoc. Similar beakers of lesser value were made in ceramic, while the most valuable goblets, called aquilla, were made in silver and gold. This ceramic cup features simple geometric designs and thus likely dates to the Late Horizon (1400-1532 C.E.). It contrasts with more elaborate, carved wooden vessels, which reflect the development of inlaid resin paints during the Spanish colonial period.
