Ancient erotic art from Peru

The Larco Museum in Lima (Peru) hosted an ancient erotic art exhibit back in 2011. Interestingly some of the pieces on display featured mating animals such as jaguars and llama with slight anthropomorphic features and expressions. The funniest one has to be the mice jug:

These look like rodents too, but the top one's arm are very humanlike:

They blend pretty well among the human sculptures displaying similar poses and attitudes. More sculptures from the exhibit can be seen on a visitor's website and through Google Images.
