Animals were used in Moche society for many practical reasons such as food, transportation, textiles, tools, and sacrifices. In addition to a practical resource and a companion, animals appear to be respected and a source of inspiration and worship

Specific animals were often associated with a type of behavior, such as jaguar for authority and leadership, showing that animals were often symbolic representing the same themes repetitively. The figures on pottery are extremely realistic and are animals that would have been common to the Moche local area

The Moche were a Peruvian peoples that inhabited the Northern Peruvian coastline from the first through eighth centuries AD. Living primarily in river valleys, their environment was full of clay and metals. Access to these resources in turn had the repercussion of extensive artistic traditions arising within the Moche culture. Having no predominant written language and thus no written records, all understanding of the Moche has been derived from the studying of art and architecture that has survived.
