Shipibo Round Pot with Tapered Top
Add color and culture to any room in the house with a handmade ceramic Shipibo Rounded Pot with Tapered Top from Peru.
The Shipibo tribe, one of Peru's most ancient ethnic peoples, maintains a strong tribal identity, ancient shamanic traditions and an enduring sense of community and collective wisdom. Likewise, Shipibo artisans share a common artistic vision that allows them to collaborate on large pieces, working interchangeably to develop cohesive arts and ceramics that many think have been hand painted by a single artist.
Shipibo art is well-known for its intricate designs, yet little understood by the outside world. Some anthropologists consider the geometric patterns an ancient language form; others speculate they represent an ancient cosmology, the mapping of the Amazon rivers or the shapes of an Anaconda. While anthropologists disagree on the exact meaning, art lovers may enjoy the elaborate design, soft curves and the light weight of each piece, which is handcrafted without the use of pottery wheels.
