The Chimú (flourished AD 800-1466) were the inheritors in power from the Huari (fell AD 700) and Tiahuanaco (fell AD 1000) cultures. The Chimú kingdom was a highly organized society, but their decorative arts such as pottery tended to be less refined and more functional than previous Peruvian cultures.
