Description: North Coast, Peru, Chimu or Chancay, ca. 900 to 1300 CE. Two finely carved hardwood loom sticks. The taller presents a finial in the form of a visage with a somber expression (note the downturned mouth), large ear ornaments, a domed headdress adorned with an incised chevron pattern, and when viewed from the opposite side, a garment adorned with a matching chevron pattern. Though his torso is missing, he stands on diminuitive legs. The second loom stick possesses a figural finial comprised of two abstract faces with pointed ears, perhaps representing jaguars, linked by an arched form that is incised with a stylized circular motif. Beneath the double visaged finial is a register incised with a repeated wave motif. Both show lovely patina and are in nice condition. Custom, museum-quality stand. Size: taller loom stick measures 17" H (43.2 cm); 18.5" H (10.8 cm x 47 cm) on stand
