I found this beautifully painted child's chair the other day. I believe it's Quechua or Quichua - depending on where they are from. I think that the depiction on the seat is Inti Raymi - the sun festival celebrated in June. I had the incredible fortune of experiencing Inti Raymi in several villages in Ecuador in 1992. Despite being drunk as a skunk, i'll never forget that magical experience!
I know that it's controversial, but i do consider this to be a 'Native American' piece even though it is from South America.
