DescriptionSash with Braided Streamers
100 B.C. - A.D. 250
Cotton, camelid fibers
Height (band) 7 1/8 in. Length 27 1/4 in.
Width (streamers) 3 1/2 in. Length 85 in.
This rather unusual piece is comprised of a wide band assembled from two narrower bands to form a complex, lozenge-based geometric design. At one end of the large band, two braided streamers over eighty inches long have been interwoven with each component part to make a smooth transition from the patterning of the large band. The color range in browns and related neutrals is especially sophisticated. The condition is very good.
