19th Century Ceremonial Awayo. From the collection of Giles Mead, ex-director of the Los Angeles Natural History Museum.
This late 19th century awayo (woman's shawl mantle) was woven with the finest hand spun vicuna and alpaca wool fibers. The brown fields are natural brown vicuna together with fully saturated cochineal, natural yellow and natural white borders. Visually, this Awayo is quiet and subdued with a soft and subtle palette. The weave is immeasurably fine and tight, and as one might expect from a textile of this pedigree, the handle is soft and floppy.
Professionally backed, stretched and mounted on a fine linen cloth.
Dimensions: overall stretched and mounted dimensions are 51 inches horizontal x 47 inches vertical.
** Please note: other weavings and accessories are shown for scale only and are not sold together with this item.
