Tunic Fragment(?), Chimu Culture of Peru, 15th Century (or before?), 16.5” x 21”

A fascinating design featured on this fragment of what might have been a much larger tunic from the Chimu culture of Peru. The design consists of various birds and beasts, possibly fish as well. The condition is ok, there is some wear (see detail image), all the colors are derived from natural dyes.
