Two very fine pre-Columbian bags from the highland Wari and Inca Cultures, a.d. 500 - 800 & a.d. 1400 - 1532. The related color sense of both bags indicates a North Coast region provenance. Sizes: 5.5 x 5.75 inches and 5.25 x 7.25 inches for the pictorial tapestry piece. The smaller bag is exceedingly finely woven as can be seen by the coin comparison image. The tapestry section at the top of it is a rare feature. Incan bags of this fineness and condition are very desirable and rare. The larger tapestry bag has imagery that is unique. It would look much better with an upgrade in conservation to align, tighten and straighten the exposed cotton warps. Its whimsical design of faces with conical headdresses and serrated collars is what makes this bag unique and charming. These figures remind me of the Tin Man from the wizard of Oz. Notice the red tongue feature on the figure on the left. I'll bite my tongue if both these bags aren't rare and special little pieces. Sold separately or together.
