Pre-Columbian, Peru, Huari (Wari) and Chimu Cultures, ca. 700 to 1470 CE.wo earthtone textile fragments from two different but equally-important Peruvian cultures. Both primarily present brown and cream hues; however, they also display shades of gold, blue, red, and green.

The smaller fragment is mounted on a fabric-lined cardboard backing, and the larger on a satin-lined cardboard backing. Size: 6" L x 4" W (15.2 cm x 10.2 cm) for the smaller; and 8.375" L x 5" W (21.3 cm x 12.7 cm) for the larger. Size: 8.375" L x 5" W (21.3 cm x 12.7 cm)
