This print showcases a remarkable textile artifact known as the "Tunic with Profile Animals and Checkerboards". Originating from Peru's South Coast, it is believed to have been created during the Paracas or Nasca period between 700 BC and AD 650. Crafted from cotton using a dye-patterned plain-weave technique, this tunic measures an impressive 72.4 x 104.1 cm (28 1/2 x 41 in. ). The intricate design features profile animals and checkerboard motifs that are meticulously woven into the fabric. The combination of vibrant colors and exquisite craftsmanship makes this piece truly extraordinary. The use of animal profiles adds a touch of symbolism, reflecting the importance of wildlife in ancient Peruvian culture. Scholars continue to debate whether this masterpiece belongs to the Paracas or Nasca civilization due to similarities in artistic styles between both cultures. However, its significance lies not only in its origin but also in its preservation throughout centuries. As we admire this print from Liszt Collection, we are reminded of the rich cultural heritage that exists within these ancient civilizations. It serves as a testament to their advanced weaving techniques and artistic prowess while offering us a glimpse into their fascinating world.
