Seller: 22needle (587) 100%, Location: Morristown, New Jersey, Ships to: US & many other countries, Item: 322342745456 Size about 10.5 inches long This is a rare and large double puma (cougar or panther) trumpet from the Incan culture in Northern Peru and is at least 600 years old. It has a brick-red slip (or wash) from hydrated iron oxides naturally found in earth as ochres or hematites. The painted yellow polychrome is mostly gone, but still outlines the spots on the pumas’ backs, especially in a triangle-shaped area on the puma’s back as well as their eyes and sharp fangs. The trumpet (called a pututu) was possibly used in a warrior initiation ceremony. The mouthpiece has been reattached.
