Seller: rodrogrs (758) 100%, Location: Merrick, New York, Ships to: Worldwide, Item: 122241710076 Here is a delightful blackware vessel depicting a splayed figure straddling a reed "caballito de Totora" (Sp: watercraft). "Caballitos de totora are reed watercrafts used by Peruvian fishermen for the past 3,000 years, archaeologically evidenced from pottery shards. Named for the way they are ridden, straddled ('little reed horses' in English), fishermen use them to transport their nets and collect fish in their inner cavity. The name is not the original name as horses were not introduced to South American until after the Spanish arrived in the 15th Century."
