Middle Nasca (Phase 5, 325-440 A.D.) vase painted with a very unusual form of the Horrible Bird, a mythical creature emphasizing the features of raptorial bird often eating a trophy head. In this case, the head is unique. It almost appears that the artist was trying to modify the head to resemble that of an Owl.
