Altar Cloth-Borneo Bark B6

Detailed Description

This exquisite hand painted individually unique Borneo bark altar cloth is a rare treasure. The making of bark-cloth is at the present time almost an extinct art in Indonesia and Polynesia.

The tree is cut down and the bark stripped off, after which the inner bark, or bast, is separated from the outer bark. If brown or black cloth is desired, the bast is not cooked, but merely beaten (rawalowo), washed (rapaa), and wrung out (rakomo).

Approximate size: 38.5" long x 18.75" wide (98cm x 48cm)
