Esta botella escultórica de cerámica representa un señor cautivo tras combate, el cual ha sido despojado de su vestimenta y está desnudo. Mantiene sus orejeras en forma de pendientes circulares dobles, que están asociadas a su alto rango social. Una soga rodea su cuello, y sus manos han sido amarradas por detrás de la espalda. Su cabello presenta el cerquillo característico de los guerreros cautivos a los cuales se les ha cortado el cabello antes del sacrificio. Su particular barba y bigote han permitido identificar a este personaje como un señor de alto rango que también ha sido representado de cuerpo entero con su atuendo y cuya cabeza también fue plasmada en un “huaco retrato” en el arte Mochica.(UH)
