Ancestor Figures ~ Ikat Weaving

139.00

I purchased a flight from Bali to Flores Island, and was hoping to go to Sumba, which lies between the two. "No flights go to Sumba", I was told, so I let go on that dream and booked the ticket to Flores Island. On the way, not only did the plane land on Sumba, but we were asked to disembark and wait in "the airport lounge".  It was there I found this example of traditional ikat depicting ancestor worship.  The 2 figures are shown with a variety of sacred animals, including birds, snakes and lizards.  This piece is extra large, measuring 26" wide x 88" long, excluding the fringe. Hand woven with natural dyes.
