Moche Owl God - The vessel has ears, arms, hands, and a tooth mouth suggest that this creation is not intended to be just an owl but also a humanoid, making it anthropomorphic. This character is prevalent in many depictions of Mochica Art work. He is known as the owl deity, bird priest, bird impersonator, and other names. He is associated with prisoner or human sacrificial ceremonies (Figure 11). He is depicted commonly holding or receiving a cup of blood or chicha (Bourget and Jones, 266).
