Border with double fringes 1932.16.0161
Anthropomorphic figure, viewed frontally. The figure has a large headdress with a similar but inverted figure in the middle. Long bands suspended from the headdress are attached to a tailed figure.
This motif occurs in three colour variations (basically yellow, blue or green), all with a red background.
Material and technique
The border is stem-stitch embroidered in woollen yarn and in linear style. Hardly any ground weave is visible, but it is probably a plain-woven cotton fabric.
