Résumé
This article is an anlysis of an extraordinary Nasca textile of the Ancient Americas collection of the Linden-Museum Stuttgart, inv.-no. 119.196 (Fig. 1). The textile whose design was probably produced by more than one needler consists of a black ground weaving with embroidered decoration in dark and light yellow covering completely the surface of the textile. The dimensions of the textile resemble those of a "manto", a coatlike garment of the former Paracas culture. The overall decoration of the textile of the Linden-Museum follows principles of a specific type of a Paracas manto done in the so-called block color style. Those garments generally show a checkerboard-like design consisting of blocks with the representation of complex figures that alterates with those without any representations. In contrast to a Paracas manto the presented textile shows a continuing sequence of blocks with figural representations (Fig. 3).Two basic motifs can be identified. Motif A shows a scene including five figures, all very prominent figures of the Nasca pantheon (Fig. 4). Figure A can be identified as a "fat" version of the so-called Harvester, a mythical being that is typical for representations on ceramics of the Nasca 5-7 phases (Fig. 5). In contrast to the traditional (skinny) Harvester. Fat Harvesters generally are characterized by a tall body dressed with a tunic that is covered with cultigens (Fig. 7). Figure A of the textile shows a body with plants growing out of it as Fat Harvest
