Chimu Culture Mummy Tape - Stepped Pattern

Quite different in feel from the other tape in our collection (956288), this soft and warm band of red, russet brown, black and white vicuna wool reverses to the same stepped design. It is in very fine, healthy condition, with several holes where it was attached to the main wrappings of the mummy. (It is here that is revealed the original blue-gray color of the black.) Chimu Culture, ca. 1200. 1-1/4 inches wide and approximately 225 inches long.
