Vicús culture was an important early culture in Peru from 1000/200 BCE to 300/600 CE.[1][2] They lived in the Piura region in the northwestern coast of Peru.

Art[edit]

They were known for their work in ceramics, copper, and gold. Living mainly on the coastal deserts, they used the native clay and local dyes to produce natural and religious symbols; modern day pottery from the town of Chulucanas is said to closely resemble the ancient art.[3] They created Double spout and bridge vessel that created whistling sounds when pouring liquids.[2]
