This shawl or wall hanging includes water buffalo, snakes, bats, horses, butterflies, monkeys, chicks, frogs, tigers, and many more animals. This piece is woven without any pattern, and must be made anew each time the weaver makes one, using only a prior piece on the bench next to her as a template.
