This is a game, similar to the Lyrics Quiz discussion in the Bandstand group.

The rules are simple: someone posts the depiction of a work of art (painting, sculpture, pottery, architecture, etc.), and a question others have to answer to, in order to take their turn.

To stick to the group's theme (A TRICK OF THE EYE), the work must have an aesthetic component to it. I know this is very subjective, so use common sense here and try to avoid readymades, shock art and meta-art if possible.

Searching the internet is OK, and even encouraged. The idea here is to have you to look for and discover new stuff.

Let's start with this:

You have to guess the author and the title.

What is this? (Purpose, usage?)
It is a pre-Columbian, mesoamerican necklace/breast plate used for ritual. Probably Aztec.
I got as far as thinking breast plate ...
It's pre-Columbian, but not mesoamerican (thus not Aztec), neither a necklace nor a breastplate, and not a ritual object.
Okay, then I'll say Native North American toilet bowl seat.
Hint #1: Moche culture (Peruvian coastline)
Hint #2: if the previous hint didn't help (Wikipedia is your friend, remember), here's another one:

A piece of jewelry for a nose piercing? A blade for shaving?
Nose piercing instrument - not quite, but close enough for me. It's called a nariguera. An ornament you hooked to your nostrils to look manly. A kind a prosthetic mustache. Pity the poor Peruvians who had little or no facial hair ;-)

Your turn.
Well, that's what I meant, "for a nose piercing," not "to pierce a nose." Of course, I wouldn't have gotten it without your hints anyhow. Let me think of something to post.
Sorry about the delay. Here's the next quiz.

And what's the question?
