The most typical architectural model in the Vicús culture is a ceramic house with and individual inside who has exaggerated and grotesque features. The model has a double roof, which is understandable in a climate with short but torrential rainfalls in the summer and intense sun exposure year around. The roof appears to be supported by wooden posts defining a large airy space. The diagonal lines painted on the body of the vessel could represent a stairway to the top of a hill or platform, simulating the mounds where this culture’s archeological sites are found.
