Seller: auntiejosattic (433) 100%, Location: Prescott, Arizona, Ships to: US, Item: 182350998608 These Pre-Colombian artifacts were found in Peru, near the coastal town of Chimbote, and date from 1100 A.D. to 1500 A.D. This display features an unfinished Chimu textile once mounted on an ancient frame loom, and its weaving tools. The textile and weaving tools belonged to a woman from the Chimu Civilization. Being a people of the sea, this textile depicts pelicans, and geometric designs often used. The Chimu Civilization was the largest civilization to thrive in Peru, just before the Inca came to power around 1500 A.D. The tight weave and fine detail of the textile is amazing, and the colors are still vibrant after so many centuries. The textile and tools were mounted with as little handling as possible to preserve their natural state.At the bottom of the loom is mounted her spool of thread, found beside the textiles. It is likely a mixture of spun Alpaca fur, cotton, and Vicuna fur - a small ancient camel. Below that is a weaving tool with a spindle whorl, a weight used for spinning. Above the textile is an attached rope made of coarser Vicuna fur. This rope was used to hold the textile in place while weaving. It is extremely rare to find remnants of a frame loom with its textile in progress, and its weaving tools. The loom display measures 18.75" x 14.5", and is 1.25" thick.
