Pre-Columbian Inca Mantle with 16 Figures, Peru, 1476-1534 AD

About

Inca Mantle with 16 figures in cubist form with multi-color fringes. This pieces with a Certificat de Bien Culturel from France. For the Incas finely worked and highly decorative textiles came to symbolize both wealth and status, fine cloth could be used as both a tax and currency, and the very best textiles became amongst the most prized of all possessions, even more precious than gold or silver. Inca weavers were technically the most accomplished the Americas had ever seen and, with up to 120 wefts per centimetre, the best fabrics were considered the most precious gifts of all. As a result, when the Spanish arrived in the early 16th century CE, it was textiles and not metal goods which were given in welcome to these visitors from another world.
