BACKGROUND The CHIMU people were residents Chimor, with its capital at the city of Chan Chan, a large adobe city in the Moche Valley near the present-day city of Trujillo on the North Coast of Peru. Chimú ceramics were crafted for two functions: containers for daily domestic use and those made for ceremonial use for offerings at burials. Domestic pottery was developed without higher finishing, while funeral ceramics show more aesthetic refinement. The main features of Chimú ceramics were small sculptures, and manufacturing molded and shaped pottery for ceremonial or daily use. Ceramics were usually stained black. The characteristic brightness was obtained by rubbing with a rock that previously had been polished.
