Middle Nasca (Phase 5, 325-440 A.D.) double-spout bottle painted with a very common Anthropomorphic Mythical Being. This creature has a combination of human and feline attributes, including a gold mouth mask, spondylus shell necklace, gold forehead ornament, and bangles in his hair—all common features of this mythical being. His extended body is adorned with a striped tunic and breech cloth. Flowing from the back of the head is a cloak or signifer, which terminates in a feline head, not unlike that seen on the Serpentine Creature. Human decapitated trophy heads are placed along the upper edge of the signifer.
