Description This Huari band, likely part of a tunic border, is unusual in portraying a range of real and imaginary animals, including a crab, a pelican-like bird, and two open-mouthed fanged predators, shown in profile with four clawed legs splayed out. While the level of preservation is poor, vibrant reds and blues can still be discerned.
Provenance Purchased by Georgia de Havenon, New York; given to Walters Art Museum, 2016.
