Tunic Fragment, Chimu Culture (Peru), 16th Century, 1’ 5” x 1’ 8”
A fascinating fragment of a tunic, with the decorated fringe depicting a row of marching birds woven in various colors. The field design appears to also include zoomorphic imagery, possibly frogs. The condition is good aside from the wear in the lower right corner (see detail images).
