Designs of Chimú vessels reflect the region’s arid climate, minimizing spillage and evaporation. Vessels with two spouts connected by a bridge were very common.

Very few Chimú vessels were painted; more commonly, seals or stamps were pressed into the clay for decoration. This example displays a stamped design of a frequently represented deity known as the Staff God, whose significance is unknown.
