Masterpiece Dragon Sumac
This category is fascinating and this particular example is mesmerising in all its aspects - the motifs, the color and the aesthetic balance.
Beyond the identity of the ethnic group, this particular piece is infused with the soul of the individual weaver.
Has two human figures in archaic style.
Note the checkerboard matrices in two places ...note the complex Escher-esque branches - where it is impossible to tell which is the figure and which is the ground.
Absolutely fabulous work of joy!
Estimated to be from the late 1800s - early 1900s
May be viewed & enjoyed in Singapore over a cup of tea.
Estimated to be from the early-mid 1800s
Superb drawing and well put together colors
Can you see the large anthropomorphic figure? Amazing drawing within which the rest of the dragon elements have been drawn.
6'2'' x 10'4'' (188 x 315 cm). Weight: 25 lbs.
