Proto Nazca Tunic Fragment, South Coast of Peru, circa 200 AD, 1' x 5" (excluding the mount)
An extremely rare and wonderful textile which shows the complexity and skill of these early weavers. See the detail images to examine the structure of these carefully woven and very colorful heads. Presumably these heads formed the bottom fringe of a complete tunic at one point in time.
