Gleaming golden color defines the intricate Raimondi stela. Named for Antonio Raimondi, who discovered it, it depicts a deity from the Chavin culture known as the smiling god. The original, incised composition embodies duality within a figure, in this case an agricultural and fertility deity with splayed taloned feet. Depicted on a vase by Ana Maria Enciso, the deity holds two tall staffs. The original is housed in the National Museum of Anthropology and Archaeology in Lima. This beautiful vessel also depicts a war god mask.
