In 1975, a body wrapped in several layers of textiles was found in the Coyo Oriente Cemetery by R.P. Le Paige. In 1995, we were given the opportunity to participate in the unwrapping of the body along with Misión Conklin. This allowed us to observe and record the distinct layers of textiles that composed the funerary bundle. The obvious differences between the layers and the identification of the exterior tunic, containing Tiwanaku techniques and iconography, made this study a rare and interesting occasion to document the local customs reflected in the bundle. This analysis has furthered our understanding of the identity of this person and the recurrence of this burial pattern. All the existing textiles that belong to this bundle, including the three tunics which define it, are presented
