About the object

Trapezoid-shaped beaded aprons were made by women from different indigenous groups living in the border regions between Brazil and the Guyanas and were worn both as everyday and festive attire. This protective clothing, which displays a geometric pattern comprising violet and red-coloured pearls against a white background, originated in Wapishana. Judging by its size, it was made to be worn by a small girl.
