The Moche Crowned Stole / Shawl has been inspired by the colours, forms and symbols of the Mochica culture (100AD - 600AD)
Border ornaments with step designs and triangles are recurring elements in the culture of the Moche or Mochica people, masters of the northern coastal desert in Peru. The symbols were permanent elements of their iconography, and were related to order and the sacred powers of its rulers.
