A rare Nazca or Siguas region tapestry panel
These abstract textiles are singular in the history of pre-Columbian weaving from South America. Attribution is Early Nazca or Siguas (Sihuas)region, southern Peru, ca. 3rd century CE. A true painterly expression done with organic dyed camelid fiber wefts and cotton warps. The textile panel itself measures 26"L x 16.50"W, excluding the long tassels folded for presentation. Condition is fine and original; the tapestry has been 'couched' in several areas due to the loose nature of the weave, but the surface has not been cleaned. Professionally mounted. Provenance: Ron Messick Fine Arts, Santa Fe, NM, Eugene Behlen, NM & FL to present.
