The Paracas The Flight Stole / Shawl has been inspired by the colours, forms and symbols of the Paracas culture (800BC - 100BC)

The Paracas textiles contain motifs portraying flying human figures, suggesting a journey into the spiritual realm. Fish and birds were also an important part of their iconography.

The Paracas people were outstanding in the use of colour, relying on natural dyes, characterized by strong hues and an amazing capacity to combine the colours to achieve fantastic works of art.

The Paracas culture developed in the central coastal region of Peru.

This piece is part of the Amano by Sol Alpaca collection which contributes to the ongoing restoration work, research and maintenance of the Amano Museum in Lima, Peru.
