Detail Photos

An antique shawl from the Chang Naga tribe.  It has rings of cowries, and weft squares of red dyed dog hair.  The shawl itself is cotton prepared on a back strap loom.  Note the small double row of cowries in the upper right, denoting the owners status as a host of multiple community feasts.

Some loss along the border of the shawl, but this is to be expected with the old pieces of this kind.
