Combining geometric abstraction with an appreciation for natural forms, this splendid cloth is a masterpiece of the weaver's art. Buried centuries ago, its superior workmanship and ritual subject matter indicate an aristocratic, possibly royal, patron. Below a field of rich, solid color, a central frieze of costumed nobles and tiny LLamas is flanked by two bands of geometric birds. Symmetrically balanced, yet full of movement, the cloth sings to the eye with the music of a vanished world. - (PF.1309)
