Border with double fringes 1932.16.0161

Anthropomorphic figure, viewed frontally. The figure has a large headdress with a similar but inverted figure in the middle. Long bands suspended from the headdress are attached to a tailed figure.

This motif occurs in three colour variations (basically yellow, blue or green), all with a red background.

Material and technique

The border is stem-stitch embroidered in woollen yarn and in linear style. Hardly any ground weave is visible, but it is probably a plain-woven cotton fabric.

Dating and origin

Paracas Necropolis, Horizonte Temprano 10 – Intermedio Temprano 1 (c. 100 BC – 100 AD)
