In Inca times, only the ruler and select nobles had the privilege of wearing t'oqapu tunics.
The "t'oqapu" waistband and the deep V-yoke were standard decorations of Inca tunics. However, the fantastic animals represented in the yoke and the floral motifs in the main field identify this tunic as dating after the Spanish Conquest in 1532.
