Museo Larco – Lima.

Museo Larco in Lima has a huge collection with historical artifacts from different periods. What surprised me was the condition of the pieces, they looked brand new. Our guide said that was because they were buried carefully and protected. A selection of drinking vessels:

And some urns.

They exhibited also textiles that were surprisingly well preserved. They were often found in frozen condition.

I was really surprised and impressed by this collection, the quality was great and the decor was as new.

They also had a collection of erotic pottery and that did not leave anything to imagination. I did not take many pictures, I was to embarassed. But here are a couple of the least graphic.
