from the nazca culture of peru ca. 600-700 a.d. depicting The Proliferous Being, who in Andean cosmology emanates the Life Force through multiple protruding tongues and continuous heads. About 5 inches wide and 7 feet long. This is a piece with beautiful color, powerful presence, and in excellent condition. It is unique in that it is completely selvedged on all four sides and, although there are many similar fragments of similar pieces illustrated in the literature, there is none that is complete like this one. Made in slit tapestry kilim technique of camelid wool with the whites in cotton, it is a complete band probably sewn onto a burial mantle - possibly one of a pair flanking a plain woven gauze-like center.
