Superb Bolivian Ahuayo with Striped Bands

About the Piece


This superb piece is a Bolivian textile that dates circa late 19th century, and is approximately 37 inches wide by 42 inches high. This Bolivian "Ahuayo" type textile is woven in alpaca, and is a deep brown color with alternating striped bands in dark green, red, claret, and white colors. There are also four bands that feature white serrated "S-motifs", that run through the length of the piece. This piece is also very analogous in size and color to an example seen in Sotheby's Pre-Columbian Art, New York, May 1986, no. 34. ($800.00-$1,200.00 estimates, $550.00 realized. See attached photo.) The piece offered here is in superb condition, and has no apparent repair/restoration. The colors are also very vibrant, and this piece can be mounted in a clear Plexiglas case which would enhance it's high eye appeal. Ex: Howard Rose collection, New York, circa 198's. I certify that this piece is authentic as to date, culture, and condition:
