The works of art displayed at the MAP, encompass a period of time dating from 1250 B.C. until 1532 A.D. All these were selected from among the collection of almost 45,000 pieces stored in the Larco Archaeological Museum in Lima. This excellent selection of samples combined with explanatory and descriptive texts in Spanish, English and french, allows visitors to adequately situate themselves within the artistic context of Ancient Peru.





INCA GALLERY. Imperial Era 1300 - 1532 a.D.

The Inca culture conquered all the territory of pre-Columbian Peru where they restored with great political ability the Tahuantinsuyo empire.

In this room we appreciate magnificent ceramic objects like the emblematic “aribalos” or monumental vessels that reproduce on the surface, decorative elements beautifully obtained that transmit a subtle message of organization and symbolism. One of these aribalos is of great size and is unique in a particular collection.
