Abstract: Brief abstract written by HRAF anthropologists who have done the subject indexing for the document Iconographic analysis is used to examine art and mythology in the transition from Moche to Chimu. The predominance of marine iconography is noted in Chimu art, especially when compared with earlier Moche art, seemingly a discontinuity. However, the shift to maritime-themed iconography actually occurs between Moche IV and Moche V. Maritime themes that persisted from Moche into Chimu include the Tule Boat and the Anthropomorphized Wave deity. The shift in themes may be linked to evidence of severe flooding, and changes in settlement patterns and religious beliefs around Moche V times. Other Moche art elements also found in Chimu are described. Huari influence on the iconography appears to have been minimal.
