"CUR" at the beginning of an image file name means that the image was created by a curatorial staff member. These study images may be digital point-and-shoot photographs, when we don\'t yet have high-quality studio photography, or they may be scans of older negatives, slides, or photographic prints, providing historical documentation of the object.
Size: undetermined or adult; probable wearer: undetermined or male. Plain weave consisting of a vertical camelid fiber warp and camelid fiber weft. Camelid fiber embroidery and fringe. Iconography: warriors holding staffs and knives (Ann Rowe).
Two textile fragments decorated with human figures or warriors with arms raised holding a staff in one hand and a triangular-shaped tumi knife in the other. The figures are wearing what looks like a feather headdress with two streamers on one side, face paint, a tabbed, short tunic, and diaper-like pants.
