She is serving a cup filled with blood. She covers the cup with a gourd. She is dressed as moon goddess (by scholars called Goddess C). Her jewelry is made of gold, turquoise and Spondylus shell. The bracelets are made of thousands of tiny beads, the tunic is covered with black feathers and gold plaques. Peru produced some of the finest hand-woven textiles of the world. Excavations of Moche burials like the one of the Old Lord of Sipan revealed textiles which were thinner than paper.
