Lot: 550 - Samoan Tapa Cloth, Early 20th C.

Samoan Tapa Cloth, Early 20th C. Size: 5'4"x 4'4" (163 x 132 cm). This tapa cloth, or bark cloth, was made in Samoa in the early 20th century. Cloth made from bark in the Pacific Islands is often referred to as “tapa” or “tapa cloth” even though each region has its own name a technique for processing bark into cloth. Captain Cook was first introduced to bark cloth in Tahiti and the Cook Islands, and so he popularized the use of the Tahitian word for bark cloth as the name of this category of material in general. People in Samoa usually make bark cloth out of the ipuah and tarok trees. Branches or thin trunks are cut into approximately 1 meter lengths. After they have been soaked in water overnight they are beaten with wooden beaters until the bark is loose. The cloth maker then slices the bark lengthwise and carefully pulls the bark off of the log in one whole piece. Then the cloth maker separates the inner and outer bark by slicing and pulling them apart. The cloth maker beats the inner bark until it smooths and stretches, folding and continually beating the cloth as it expands. It takes at least 6 hours of this pounding to make bark cloth that is suitably soft enough to make clothing. Finally, the cloth is unfolded, soaked, and wrung out.

In its decoration it is similar to the large tunics of the region. The use of this type of elaborate embroidery became popular in the 19th century, possibly due to the influence of the Hausa traders who traveled throughout the region. The decorative elements are mostly zoomorphic or abstract shapes with defined and decorated neck, hem and sleeve openings. Size: 2'0'' x 3'1'' (61 x 94 cm). Provenance: Ex Yosi Barzilai collection.

Lot: 585 - Mantle Border, N. Coast, 1200-1500 AD.

Mantle Border, N. Coast, 1200-1500 AD. Alpaca and cotton. Very finely woven tapestry mantle border with structurally woven checkerboard fringe. The image is of an unknown quadruped mammal with a fish head tail whose position in the serial image alternates direction between two poses, a core duality belief in the Andes. This could be a rendition of the moon ikon.  Size: 2'3'' x 4'', 69 x 10 cm (textile); 4'2'' x 1'9'', 127 x 53 cm (backing).

Lot: 586 - 2 Headbands, Ica Culture, 1300-1550 CE

2 Headbands, Ica Culture, 1300-1550 CE. Two related warp-faced decorative bands with tie cord ends. Profile pelicans are the predominant motif on both but rendered differently, indicating related but not identical tribes. Both are displayed on the sacred diagonal and incorporate phase changes, paying homage to duality, an overriding principle of life. Size: 3'' x 1'7'' (9 x 48 cm); 4'' x 2' (10 x 61 cm).

Lot: 587 - Tie Dye Mantle, South Coast, Nazca Culture, 200-600 CE.

Tie Dye Mantle, South Coast, Nazca Culture,     200-600 CE.  A very fine four-selvage alpaca loom panel in cochineal red with repeated tie-dyed yellow circles. The Nazca developed a variety of textile embellishments to designate the elite members of their society. This enigmatic shawl is part of a select body of garments produced in a new way first devised by them to distinguish wearers from the common people's forms of textile decoration. These austere garments might have been a reference to night skies.

Lot: 588 - Mantle, South Coast,  Nazca Culture, 400 CE.

Mantle, South Coast,  Nazca Culture, 0-400 CE. Size: 6'5'' x 2'7'' (196 x 79 cm). An exceptional example of this royal shawl with a very fine deep red body trimmed with single needle knit figures in near-perfect condition. The Nazca were the only culture to develop and utilize single needle knitting to create three-dimensional figures. As the fringe/hair is dyed with caustic substances, it is often eroded or lost. The row of serial figures displays a variety of colors which may have communicated information about the wearer to the culture. This is a top-quality example.

Lot: 589 - Wall Tapestry, North Coast, Chimu Culture, 1200-1550 CE 

Wall Tapestry, North Coast, Chimu Culture, 1200-1550 CE. Size: 2'8'' x 5'10'' (81 x 178 cm). A spectacular tapestry weaving depicting two ruler/god figures with zoomorphic attendants. Each figure is supported by twin profile jaguar figures, and their crowns have twin jaguar appendages, highlighting the god-king's reliance on these ferocious allies. The twin figures are shown in two color phases, referencing the duality at the basis of all Andean metaphysics. This rare and bold representation of a critical theme was probably used as a religious wall tapestry in a Chimu palace.

Lot: 590 - Fine Tunic, South Coast, Wari Culture, 700-900 CE

Fine Tunic, South Coast, Wari Culture, 700-900 CE. Size: 3'4'' x 6'2'' (102 x 188 cm). A very fine tunic from the Imperial Wari culture. While the identity of the wearer is unknown, these rare codified garments were certainly meant to distinguish the elite members of society. The wine-colored ground is split by two prominent design stripes, each showing repeated serial images of twin interlocking stepped latch hooks—possibly their version of yin and yang—separated by a black line on the sacred diagonal. This is accompanied by profile warrior heads wearing simple caps, perhaps a shorthand for the iconic four-cornered caps, displaying the essential Wari split eye, square nose, and deep, prominent mouth. These two motifs are shown in the same form in 80 boxes, while each side selvage features the same ideas in the unique compressed Wari style. A tour de force of textile fabrication, this tunic displays the wearer's exceptional nature to all who see it. Despite some typical damage, it is well mounted, and the colors remain fresh and vibrant.

Lot: 591 - Turban, Sihuas River Valley, South Coast, Sihuas Culture, 100-400 CE

Turban, Sihuas River Valley, South Coast, Sihuas Culture, 100-400 CE. Size: 0'9'' x 7'10'' (23 x 239 cm). The best of the well-known textile crowns of the Sihuas people. Displaying what are called repeated "spider" images separated by double-headed serpents, what we actually see are three yellow figures as stylized shaman figures whose oversized arms, hands, feet, and legs link heaven and earth. Their heads are depicted in three slightly different forms atop the rectangular bodies, and the loins below always in close proximity to the stylized serpents. The torsos contain four color concentric diamonds and have four-color power stripes emanating from their sides. Perfect condition and perhaps the finest known example of this type of costume textile. Great color to the one-loom panel tapestry alpaca creation.

Lot: 592 - Long Banner, South Coast, Nazca Culture, 400-800 CE.

Long Banner, South Coast, Nazca Culture, 400-800 CE. Size: 11" x 8' (216 x 244 cm). A very fine alpaca tapestry band featuring 8 repeating staff and trophy head holding figures with flying decapitator headdresses. Part of the regalia of a ritual leader, they are thought to be mantle borders, but their actual use is little known. Note that they have tie cords at each end and may be turbans. This superb example is probably from the 7th century with Wari influence, as the figure, though generated in Nazca form and drawing, is part of the religious symbols of the Wari, not the earlier Nazca. Note that the figure is shown fully clothed in a striped tunic and trophy head loincloth with typical Nazca stepped latch hook designed belts. The figures carry a trophy head in one hand and Wari-style axes in the other. This is a unique rendition of this theme in a very complete and fine garment.

Lot: 593 - Chuquibamba Mantle, South Highlands, 1400-1550 CE

Chuquibamba Mantle, South Highlands, 1400-1550 CE. Size: 3'0'' x 7'0'' (91 x 213 cm). A superb example of the characteristic weavings of the Chuquibambas. Like all Andean tribes, design was tightly controlled as it functioned as an identifying banner of your heritage, while the weaver's challenge is to render unique beauty while staying within the general confines of their tribal identity. This alpaca warp-faced cloth is very complex and time-consuming to produce, as numerous scaffold wefts and warps would have to be employed to handle the color changes. Like a lot of Inca period garments, the number 4 is repeatedly referenced in the number of designs, 4 x 8, and the colors utilized. The overall stylized images are predominantly profile pelicans in flight with triangular heads and frontal shamans and Supay images shown in some squares.

Lot: 594 - Tunic, South Coast, Nazca Culture, 200-600 CE

Tunic, South Coast, Nazca Culture, 200-600 CE Size: 4'3'' x 5'5'' (130 x 165 cm). Characteristic checkerboard poncho of the Nazca culture. These fine alpaca garments were used, with slight variation, to delineate certain members of society. The bold use of yellow and red references the male and female principles, and the color identification of gender remained the same throughout the Andes for thousands of years. The condition shows areas of loss, but there is no restoration, and the garment remains intact.

The garment was wrapped around the body, belted, and fastened at the shoulders with a decorative pin called a topo. The Spanish thought the garment exposed too much flesh.

Magyar Szur Coat, Hungary, Mid 19th C. Wool and leather. Size: 3'7" x 4'10"(109 x 147 cm). Worn by Magyar herdsmen in Hungary as far back as the Middle Ages, the Szur is a dramatic, mid-calf coat that was traditionally worn over the shoulders as a cape and lavishly decorated with cutwork felt applique or with dense embroidery. Older men wore szurs embellished with black decoration while young men wore colorful szurs especially when a man proposed. The young man would leave the coat behind at his potential bride's home. If the answer was yes, the bride and her family would keep his coat inside. If the answer was no, she would leave the coat hanging outside. This example is decorated with applique and has a crisp design and natural dye palette. The leather yoke would normally have a buckle on it, but this coat is missing its buckle. Many of these coats end up with rust stains from their buckles, so the missing buckle spared this coat from the same fate. The large collar was used as a cover when it was raining. This coat was part of the exhibition "Felt Decoded" at the Museum of Craft and Design in San Francisco in 2017. Provenance: Ex Yosi Barzilai collection.
