Curled Tailed Naga Shoulder Cloth
Name: Curled Tailed Naga Shoulder Cloth

Item#: 9107

This woman's shoulder cloth to wear to temple is covered with patterns of curled tailed Naga (mythological river serpents). The white pattern on one side of the textile is Naga teeth (curled hooks), and the other side is Naga heads with teeth. Between the Naga are figures that some say are Phii Nak (mythological giant spirits - very fierce spirits that protect children in particular from evil spirits from the woods). These Phii Nak figures are not portrayed in the most common form, but at least one prominent author on this region says they can appear in this form. Hand woven from naturally dyed hand-reeled silk, this textile comes with a photo of the dyer and designer wearing the shoulder cloth.

Size: 7 in x 74 in.
