Name: Dark Naga and Giant Spirit Cloth

Item#: 7195

One of her favorite patterns, this shaman cloth shows the dyer's interpretation of naga (mythological river serpents) and giant spirits (very fierce protective spirits called Phii Nak in Laos). The black background provides a crisp support for the primarily natural silk colored naga, with bright red and orange plus muted yellow, turquoise, navy, adn grey accents. The nag are represented as pregnant, as shown by the alternating natural and color flowers that make up its body. The outer two borders are two-headed naga and a water pattern, followed by tassels made from cut silkworm cocoons. The photo of the natural dyer modeling this textile in her yard is included. Note: The color of the main light background is a natural silk color. The photos vary from whiter to more ivory in representation.
