Western abstract art abstracts from the particular ignorer to capture an idea or the "essence" of something.  It abstracts in order to escape particularity.  By contrast this bowl recalls a memory of a particular place on a particular river, the Nalpi River.  This evoking of specific memory is characteristic of Amazonian Quichua art.
