526 RARE Antique Sumatran Tampan Ship cloth Textile Art
Superbly drawn Tampan Ship Cloth from Indonesia
Symmetrical with ships, animals and people.
These elements have been arranged in a way such that they make a larger macro picture of two men dancing. RARE rendition of a "meta" picture seen only in very few Tampans
Note the blue borders at the top & at the bottom.
Amazing art combined with superbly crafted weave.
Estimated to be from the mid 1800s
