Ancestor Figures ~ Supplementary Weft Hand Weaving

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 typical example of "supplemental weft" weaving depicting two ancestor figures, each intertwined with sacred animals from the sea.
