This artistic tradition serves to articulate, in visible form, the entire sphere of existence of the Baining people. Leaves, bark cloth, bamboo, strips of wood are the primary raw materials of the Baining artist.
Bark cloth is stretched and sewn over thin bamboo and wooden armatures. Large leaves are used as filler material. The resulting cloth is soaked in a local stream, then laid out flattened on stone stones, and bleached by the sun. After the bark cloth has been cut and sewn over the leaves and the armatures, it is painted with pigments.
This would be a wonderful item to add to your collection or home. Late 20th-Century Shows some age, but overall in good condition.
