The Dumbarton Oaks Tunic: A Sartorial Statement of Inca Imperial Power

The Dumbarton Oaks Tunic is one of the most well known but poorly understood Inca objects in the world. Although it has given rise to many theories, some more plausible than others, a close examination of the garment indicates it was likely a sartorial statement of Inca imperial power phrased through scaled relationships. This lecture will be presented by Andrew J. Hamilton, the Alianza Mayer Scholarship Winner for 2011-12.
