Pre-Columbian Red Gauze Mantle with Multicolor Little Figures, Proto-Nazca Peru 100BC-300AD
Red Gauze Mantle with Multicolor Little Figures Border with a Long Brown Hair-like Fringe. The tiny figures resemble prisoners tied together with a long and wide central band, with the war paraphernalia taken away as symbol of disgrace and dishonor, like a lowering of rank and showing long hair without hairdo and helmet, reminding the paintings where the captives are taken by the hair with the hand of the victorious opponent. An impressive and powerful image. Every head of a pure cubist shape is woven with a different color, so there are no two persons alike. A tremendous (tour de force) woven artifact.
