Museum of Natural History of Venice

A preincaic malacomorphic whistle pot, made of polychrome clay, that takes one of the main features of the Mochica ceramics: the illustration of everyday life images. A specific subset is represented by whistle pots of the 4th-5th century A.D., dedicated to food resources, which provide valuable information to both archaeologists and naturalists.
