Antique Tampan Ship Cloth from Sumatra (maybe Putidoh area)
The lone man at the helm of this ship is conjectured to be a Dutch / Colonial "white" man and the rest of the people are the members of the family that he created in Sumatra.
This cloth is not just a weaving, not just a work of art but a document narrating the early family history.
This drawing is a very rare one and is probably never to be found again.
Estimated to be from the early 1800s
Offered from the Personal Collection
