Chancay gauze weaving placed in an embroidery hoop. It is presently in the Crater Rock Museum in Central Point,OR. This is not a good way to preserve it.

Beth, I guess i should get back over there a see if it is still in the museum and talk to them about it.  Who knows how much of the damage was already done before it was purchased.  I am glad I was able to take the photo and see it up close.

I agree whole-heartedly, this is a terrible way to "preserve" this lace!

Would it help if the owners realized that pieces like this are selling on the open market for anywhere from USD $500-$2000, for gauzes less than a yard square, even in a dreadful economy?  ...And it's not like the Chancay Culture people are here to make any more of these gauzes, either.

This piece is literally falling apart on the wall.  What a miserable shame.

Thank you for the photo, Paula.  If this gauze doesn't survive another hundred years, at least we have a record of it.
