Description

Unusual and attractive Ewe kente chief’s cloth with an alternating pattern of white and orange chickens in the borders and a more simple design of striped blocks in the central field. Chickens were the preeminent sacrificial offering to the gods and it’s possible that their prominent role on this cloth relates to that context.The strips are sewn together using a sewing machine rather than hand stitched as is more usual. Condition is excellent. Dates from circa 1950.

Measurements 143 inches X 81, 363 cm X 206.
