This herding sling is made of colorful braided Llama wool. Large tassel at one end used to swing and persuade their herd. The center slotted pouch cradled the projectile (smaller than a warriors sling). There are other slings used by the Incas. A Warriors sling has a large center pouch without having a tassel. The ceremonial dance huaraca is elaborate in its construction. Resembles this Shepherd sling but usually lacks the pouch slit.

Andean highlands, Peru. Ca. 16th -17th century. Measures 60" / 152.4 cm in length. Choice condition. Museum de-accession.
