W1628-Ayotupas TTS

W1628 - AYOTUPAS TTS West Timor.  Simply stunning.

Collected in the field by Julie Emery in 2006. Handwoven with a main panel of indigo dye on commercial cotton. The motif work is BUNA in which the embroider threads are worked into the weaving as it goes to create the Anthropomorphic figures. See Timorese Textile books for similar...SCARF - 114cm long x 45cm wide     32" long x 12.5"

Ayotupas is famed for its excellent buna work representing anthropomorphic figures.

Scarves/Selandang/Betana are worn by both men and women in Timor and serve many purposes. They can keep the sun off the head or balance a pot of water or bundle of sticks or cow feed that must often be carried up to 5km from the source to the village and they keep the chill out on those cold mountain nights.

This very effective image has been achieved by tieing small bunches of thread in the weft then dying it and weaving on a simple back strap loom to create this selandang or bet’ana and represents traditional clothing as it can be very cold in the mountains of central Timor and is soft and smooth to the touch.

Worn by both men and women either around the neck or on top of the head to help with balancing pots of water, bundles of sticks for fires or branches of feed for cows all of which must often be carried up to 5 miles daily. Handwoven on a simple backstrap loom.

An opportunity to add to your collection or give it as a wonderfully unique gift of integrity.
