Description

A lliclla is a square mantle worn around the shoulders; indigenous women in the Andes have continued to wear these traditional mantles, fastened by silver shawl pins, even in modern times. Although colonial- era weavers in the Andes preserved the art of Precolumbian tapestry technique, they incorporated many European decorative motifs into their designs. Our magnificent shawl is adapted from a beautiful Peruvian womans wedding mantle (late 16thearly 17th century) in the Museums collection.

Wool/Viscose/Silk. Imported. 75'' x 28''; 1'' fringe.
