Powerful and Sexual.The Phallic King's cape and crown, as well as his emphatic endowment, proclaim his royal status. His eyes closed, the deity is enraptured in a distant ecstacy.
This powerfully phallic figure is representative of those fired in clay by artisans of the Mochica culture, dating from 1250 BCE through 800 CE, along the coast of Peru.
Early Spanish chronicles describe the "complex polytheism" of the Native American Nazca peoples making up this culture. Their realistic sculptures suggest a natural celebration of sexuality.
