What is "Moche?" The Moche civilization flourished in northern Peru along the northwest coast from approximately 100 to 700 AD. The Moche culture was sophisticated and their artifacts reflected their lives, with detailed scenes of hunting, fishing, fighting, and elaborate ceremonies, among other things. The human figure depicted here is a standing ceramic figure from the 3rd-5th Century; more information on this piece can be found here. The cat figure is a "spotted feline bottle" from the 4th-7th Century; this vessel depicts a snarling pampas cat, but for the fun of this maze game, we're pretending it's a pet cat for a young Peruvian boy. Click here to learn more about this ceramic cat.
