Fig. 22: This basket was one of those used to develop the Paracas site basket typologies (Peters 2005–2006)

This basket was one of those used to develop the Paracas site basket typologies. Despite efforts made to reinforce the basket in the 1940s, the fibers contain salts that make it liable to destruction in the humid air of Lima. A stitched cloth label from the 1940s endures in good condition, while lettering on a more recent tag has been eaten away.
