Ancient PerĂº - 1203
This pack of 54 cards is said to be a 'producto peruano' but it may have been printed in China and the quality is very low. In my pack, the 5 and 6 of spade have been replaced by the 5 and 6 of club. Like many Chinese packs, one of the two jokers is the gray version of the other.
The cards present pottery with a strong erotic theme from Chimu, Moche, Nazca, Recuay, Viru and Vicui cultures. All of them are of the pre-Inca era. 44 cards are from the Moche culture which seems to have been more obsessed by sex. However, we have to remember that pottery is how most people from ancient cultures showed other generations their lives. Most of the pictures if not all are from the Museo Larco of Lima (www.museolarco.org).
