An Incan Or Paracas Textile Weaving #044

$ 375.00
A well preserved waistband fragment from a tunic with an undulating figure eight design.This piece has been attributed by one authority to the late Horizon, A.D. 1476-1534. Similar examples illustrated in To Weave for the Sun: Andean Textiles in the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston" by Rebecca Stone Miller. This superb textile has a refinement and closeness of weaving that speaks of the high technical as well as artistic achievement of the Incan weavers. Another authority suggest's this piece could actually be much older, dating to the Paracas civilization which predates the Incas by 1500 - 2000 years like other ancient textiles from the area. It owes it excellent state of preservation to the unusual climate of the Andes.
