This is woven from coarse handspun cotton using all natural dyes, the birds are called ”manu fui” in Timorese and represent wild jungle fowl, a symbol of virility. Provenance from the Edward Gerber estate, a prolific California collector into the 1970’s. This piece is in pristine condition. L: 172cm/84.5in (without fringe) and W: 80cm/31.5in.
