Pre-Columbian Proto-Nazca Textile Fragment – Anthropomorphic Figure with snake-like figures coming out of its head. An additional figure appears to be upside down with yellow eyes.
It is a wonder to behold antiquities such as a pre-columbian textiles, an authentic piece of art that has been preserved for centuries and that survives generation after generation. Nazca, Chancay, Chimu, and Huari Textiles are infinitely more delicate than wood, metal, or rock artifacts, and so the existence of these pieces after hundreds and thousands of years is especially exceptional. The textiles you find at Muzeion maintain their vibrant colors, natural threads, and unique, historical designs.
This piece is framed and professionally sewn onto a blue cotton gauze background.
