The Lambayeque Valley was home to the Sicán (or Lambayeque) ceramic style. Developing toward the end of the first millennium CE, it continued until the end of the fourteenth century when the region was conquered by the expanding Chimú kingdom.
The most characteristic motif in Sicán art is the frontal face of the so-called Sicán Lord. It is widely seen on ceramics, metalwork, textiles, and mural painting. With this rare portrayal, an impressive Lord is solid cast in lead metal and seated on his throne. He has the characteristic large wide eyes, prominent pointed nose, and wide mouth. His ears are triangular projections with large circular ear ornaments below. He wears an elaborate plumed royal headdress, and at the front, extends a kero with both hands.

Provenance: From the private collection of R Jerry Bock, Hawaii, assembled in the 1990s, thereafter private Canadian collection, acquired from the trade in 2010.
