General Description

The Nazca (Nasca) created textiles with a vibrant array of colors, similar to their ceramic arts, and refined this palette in the Middle Horizon (600-1000 CE). This bag is made of a simple red plain weave with supplemental designs in blue and yellow. The dynamic fringe along the base was a popular feature that continued throughout ancient Andean cultural history.
