Details

A stylized tumi axe is depicted in this area rug from Peru. The tumi was a ceremonial blade characteristic of ancient cultures such as the Moche, Chimu, and Inca. A typical tumi axe features a curved blade at one end, its handle often adorned with a small sculpture that depicts a legendary or historical figure. The composition on this rug is realized in a variety of colors against a body of black. Andean artisan David Laura Zanabria designs the rug, weaving it by hand from wool on an artisanal loom.

Gorgeous!”

This wall tapestry is such a quality piece that I hate to have to return it. Unfortunately, the colors are much more vibrant than I anticipated and just wont work in the room it was intended for. I will continue to explore other items made by this artisan.

A truly magnificent piece!”

The tapestry just arrived and, although I originally planned to incorporate it as a wall hanging, I have placed it under my dining table which has a glass top and is surrounded by six black leather chairs - it is truly magnificent and I have already had compliments!
