A.D. 100 - 500
Camelid fibers, cotton
Length 144 in. Width 1 1/2 in.
A longer, central narrow band is joined at either end by shorter, wider bands, these finished at their outer ends with a six-inch fringe. The ground color of this textile done in a variation of double-weave is a rich old rose, with the design worked out in the intentionally limited colors of light blue, gold, and white, with black outlining details. The narrow band shows a long parade of conventionalized profile zoomorphs, every other one oriented to an opposite edge. The end bands alternate two more complex units seen frontally or from above. These are formed as developed zoomorphs. Condition is excellent.
