PP001-PB

Decorated with an anthropomorphic combination bird-headed deity with a crocodile tail in the center of the plate and two similar deities on the pedestal.

Chorrera ceramics are distinguished by a variety of pleasing imaginative forms and well-finished surfaces. They come from over a wide geographic area, from the semi-arid Manabí Province to the humid Santa Elena Peninsula. The actual site of Chorrera, after which archaeologists named the cultural development, is located in the Babahojo River Valley northeast of Guayaquil in the Los Ríos Province.
