This tapestry was handwoven in Peruvian Andes during the 20th century
It features a central square of polychrome swan-like birds on a black ground surrounded by a series of concentric borders. They feature a band of butterflies on a white ground, various one-off geometric symbols on a black ground, and finally a border of birds of a different variety than what was utilized in the center. The top and bottom are finished with undyed brown skirt borders. The bottom skirt is signed by the weaver "Sllamocca". It utilizes a wide palette of blues, greens, yellows, browns and cochineal-derived purples and pinks. The colors and style suggest it was woven by the talented weavers in the Ayacucho region. Very soft and lightweight, can double as a multifunctional textile or wall tapestry.
In very good condition, with a light airy handle. Some light color run.
