Description
Ceramic images of people made by the Nasca fifteen hundred to two thousand years ago placed emphasis on the subjects' clothing. Textiles were very important in the Central Andes, and many fiber works of art were made by the talented Nasca weavers. The dry sands of the coastal desert of Peru have preserved thousands of these cloths, but ceramic images depict many more, as here. The man has a double belt, carefully shown with knots in the front, a shoulder mantle that may have been tie-dyed, and a woven headband with a stepped triangle motif. The ceramic painters took great pains to show how the mantle went over his upper arms and how the two halves of the headband overlapped.
