– Feathered Walls: Hangings from Ancient Peru, presents the exceptional opportunity to view twelve, spectacular, feather panels made by the Wari Tribe between 600 A.D. and 1000 A.D., considered among the most luxurious and unusual works created by indigenous textile artists prior to the Spanish conquest in 1532. Rarely on display because of their fragile nature, the panels which it is believed were decorative wall hangings, are made of finely woven cotton cloth completely covered in the small, iridescent, body feathers of the blue and yellow macaw applied in an arresting design of large rectangles.
