a rare type of pre-Columbian bag. a.d. 1000 - 1400. It is a very large, ceremonial coca bag (17" x 11") with fantastic creatures that are different on each face of the bag. It was woven with a number of mixed tapestry and patterned warp-faced weave structures. It comes from the Ichma Culture of Peru. These Ichma coca bags utilize an unusual combination of tapestry and other techniques that are only found in this rare group of bags and no other. They are fascinating for both the variety of imagery and structures. This bag has been conserved with an interior liner cloth and is from a notable old collection. See the link below to view another fragmented example of Ichma bag on my pages that has unusual color for the type and which is currently mounted behind a Plexi cover that allows both faces to be seen at one time.. http://rugrabbit.com/node/184692
