Unique tapestry woven coca bag. Peru, Wari Culture, ad 500 - 800. This small bag has killer imagery with it's Jester-like main figures. One figure appears to be biting his tongue and is reminiscent of the Tin Man from the Wizard of Oz with his cone shaped headdress. i have not seen another Wari piece with this particular imagery in 40+ years of looking. Fine and rare, Wari textiles are highly collected and admired as some of the most finely woven and graphic pre-Columbian textiles ever made in the Andes. This piece was lined and conserved to a backing and placed in a Plexiglass case. With some careful conservation work to secure and better align the warps this little gem could be made to look substantially better. It is priced accordingly. One of a kind. Textile size: 5 x 7 inches. As mounted on frame: 8 x 10 inches. The opposite face of the bag is concealed by the mounting method.
