This fantastic hanging painting of antelopes, hyenas, and a huge snake measures about 47-1/2" (121 cm) wide and 32" (81 cm) high. It is composed of 7 strips of coarsely spun cotton cloth.
I have learned that men weave the strips on a horizontal loom, and women sew them together. The cloth is then painted with brown or black fermented mud. Made by the Senufo people of the Ivory Coast. I date this piece c 1950.
Condition? One of the strips has come un-sewn for a few inches, an easy repair. See photo # 6.
