Journey to the Hereafter ~ Ikat Hand Weaving

289.00

Journey to Hereafter: every culture has an "afterlife story", and in Indonesia, it is the boat that carries the deceased to the beyond. This ikat was discovered on Flores Island in Sikka village, and is extraordinarily wonderful! Menkuddo (brown), tamarind (black) and other natural dyes are utilized, as well as a distinctive plaiting technique near the start and end of the weaving. Ikat is the dyeing  process that produces fuzzy edges, but in this piece, lines are very precise and geomtric, indicating a highly skilled dyer/weaver. The weaver has also "tie-dyed" the fringes. Accompanying the deceased are animal figures such as the kimodo dragon, which only lives on one island off the western coast of Flores. All natural cotton; 30.5" tall x 49" wide, plus 8" fringe.
