Unusual collection of 6 old “prayer cloths” from a Taoist Master’s ceremonial robe (see enlargement #7). For generic purpose’s these should be considered to be from the Mien group as they came from Vietnam and are circa 40 to 50 years old- woven from handspun cotton. They all have the same basic pattern indicating they are probably from the same priest’s outfit. These used to be quite easy to get about 15 years ago but now almost impossible to find. Dimensions- the largest one is 18cm/7.1in x 18cm/7.1in and the smallest one is 16cm/6.2in x 16cm/6.2in.
