Middle Nasca (Phase 5, 325-440 A.D.) vase decorated with a pair of Harvesters, a common theme in the Middle Nasca period. The Harvester is a farmer who is always depicted with a concial hat, stiched up on the front side, and holding plants of various types. In this case bean pods are attached to the hat, and unidentified stalks are held in his hands. This creature obviously symbolized fertility of the crops and a bountiful harvest.
