Shoowa Prestige Cloth

Kuba Shoowa People

DR Congo

21 3/4 x 24 1/2 inches (55 x 62 cm)

DESCRIPTION

Prestige Cloth

Raffia, stem stitch and cut-pile embroidery

The simplicity and regularity of the grid format, as well as the hyper focus on one particular motif, belies the conceptual and artistic sophistication of this composition. Indeed the layout highlights the Shoowa artists' seeminglyboundless capacity for brilliant improvisation on one pattern or theme.
