    Shipibo Amazon Jungle Quempo Bowl - 5 In.

    For the Shipibo, pottery is distinctly female work.  Quempo is how the Shipibo refer to this type of flaring bowl, also known in the jungle as mocahua.  It is used to used to drink masato, a thick, yucca-based drink and for other fluids and therefore has external water-related motifs. The thin walls of this bowl are elegantly constructed so that the rim is narrower than the body.  A face is painted over slight protrusions of pottery for the eyes, nose, chin and ears.  Beautifully painted with fine Shipibo artistic patterns, typical of their work. Slight variations occur due to the handmade nature of this item.  Made by Shipibo women of Peru.
