Andean 900 BCE-1532 CE Artsconnected, Minneapolis Institute of Arts Inca Kero ( drinking vessel ) This vessel features a dual-image of a jaguar and an eagle, two of the most important animals in ancient Andean beliefs.The most common Inca vessel was the stirrup spout which is a bottle shaped vase intended for holding liquids with a long neck that forms the spout which usually serves as a handle.Inca effigy jars were also a popular utilitarian ceramic that was made in large quantities since they were casted from a mold, whereas the stirrup spouts were handmade and welded into the vessel.One characteristic of Inca pottery is that it did not portray the human form, unlike other cultures that thrived before them.They focused more on geometric patterns and shapes and heads of animals.
