Quechua peoples have used chicha bowls for centuries in ceremony, sometimes to seal a contract of marriage. Each party drinks chicha from the bowl, symbolizing their shared life and interconnection.

This hand carved hard wood chicha bowl features a band of six fish and a band of fourteen Inti (sun) symbols around the inside. Eight jaguars stand at attention around the outside rim above a geometric band of the great Andean chakana design. The age of this item is not yet determined. The finish on the inside bottom of the bowl has worn over years of use.  Learn more about chicha bowls:
