HUARMEY PANEL FRAGMENT
The vibrant band probably from a cuff, woven in slit-tapestry in camelid wool with two stylized mythical figures in profile, each with squared snout and toothy grin, holding a trophy-head, and wearing tunics of alternating colors, the lower edge in a wavy pattern.
The distinctive Huarmey textiles, show the influence of the Wari style with figures outlined in black for a greater graphic effect.
For other examples of Huarmey textiles, see Anton, 1987: no. 107
