Bold designs on early Nazca vessels were naturalistic and representational, featuring motifs from land, sea, and air. Plants and animals are abundantly illustrated, most often on bottles and bowls. Figures are painted with simple outlines containing large areas of color. From Nazca, Peru, circa 400 CE. (National Museum of Scotland, Edinburgh, UK)
