Antique Iban Kumbu Ikat textile.
Gorgeous graceful elegant repeated motifs
I can see some human motifs in the textile and I have highlighted these in two images
Clearly there is some meaning in these motifs but I am still trying to read up on this subject.
An impressive piece of textile art perfect for hanging up as woven wall art
Estimated to be from the early 1900s
Generally good condition - some discoloration / staining
Likely from Saribas (Sarawak)
This item has spent a lifetime being used for the purpose of its creation with the original artist/user. Signs of this life lived heartily may be present on the piece in the form of stains, thread loss, loose threads, holes, tears, color run and other imperfections. Therefore the condition must be assumed to be “not” perfect. More photos of such imperfections will be provided on request.
