Caption: Erotic sculpture from the Moche Epoch (100 AD-800 AD). This sculpture depicts a masturbated dead man with a prominent and erect penis. This is thought to be an example of humorous sexual moralizing. This artefact is on display in the Larco Museum, a privately owned museum of pre-Columbian art, located in the Pueblo Libre District of Lima, Peru. It showcases one of the world's largest collections of pre-Columbian art including Moche, Nazca, Chimu, and Inca pieces. Additionally, the Larco Museum is well known for its gallery of pre-Columbian erotic pottery.
