This piece is a direct legacy of the Moche ceramics (also called Mochica) from Peru. It represents a bat-soldier, with all the characteristics of the most refined period of the Moche culture. It's been executed with the characteristic colours of the Moche culture: cream and different red colours, and we may understand this as one one of the mythical transformations that is commonly reflected on Moche artistic expressions, but still lack of an explanation to many of their myths.
