Scope note
Feathered encasing body suits awarded to a Mexica warrior after taking his second captive in battle. The feathered suit was worn over ichcahuipilli (quilted cotton body armor) along with other elements of the Cuextecatl (Huastec) warrior costume. They were made in a variety of different colors, and frequently decorated with a motif consisting of pairs of black rectangles known as "hawk scratches" that are also associated with the Huastec region.
