Massive & Superb Chancay Painted Textile
North-coastal Peru, Ca 1000 to 1250 CE. A huge and outstanding textile! Painted in brown tones over an almost burlap type fabric, with the scene of a standing nude man (in all his nude glory) with fantastic sea creatures emerging from his head. He may represent a fisherman or shaman. Measuring 84" wide by 38" H. Custom framed and ready to hang! Losses as shown, but still a wonderful statement piece!

PROVENANCE: EX-Westermann collection, Germany acquired in the 1950's.
