Peruvian tapestry

A typical tapestry from the Andes, this one from Peru.  The card indicates that it's part of a series from the area.

Weaving and tapestry have been part of the way of life in the Andes since the beginning of human occupation there.  They are almost a means of communication, indicating age, gender, social status.

Welcome to my postcard collection! I love hearing what you think of the cards - but spam WILL be deleted.
