Feathered Wall Hangings of Ancient Peru
03/09/13, 18:17
Feathered Walls – Hangings from Ancient Peru, an installation comprising 12 impressive feather panels—probably hangings—made by the Wari peoples of southern Peru between about 700 and 1000 will go on view at The Metropolitan Museum of Art, beginning September 16.  Made of finely woven cotton cloth and measuring roughly seven by two feet on average, the panels are covered completely with the small iridescent body feathers of the blue and yellow macaw in a bold design of large rectangles. They rank among the most luxurious and unusual works created by textile artists in Peru prior to the Spanish conquest in 1532.

Drawn from the Metropolitan Museum’s own collection—the panels were acquired by Nelson A. Rockefeller in the 1950s and bequeathed to the Met in 1979—as well as two loans, these icons of ancient Peruvian textile art will be installed on the 88-foot-long wall between the Museum’s ancient South American art galleries and the galleries for modern and contemporary art.

The panels and the many feather pieces illustrated in Peruvian Featherworks, a book published by the Metropolitan Museum in 2012, speak eloquently of the rich imagination and remarkable ingenuity of ancient Peruvian textile artists. 
The installation is organized by Heidi King, Senior Research Associate in the Metropolitan Museum’s Department of the Arts of Africa, Oceania, and the Americas.

Exhibition dates: September 16, 2013 – March 3, 2014
