Unusual Ewe Kente cloth (detail)
Size: 118 ins x 74, 300cm x 188
Dates from circa 1930-50s
'Highly unusual cloth in which a master weaver has used a virtuoso desplay of complex and finely controlled supplementary weft float motifs to unite a varied group of different warp stripe patterned and coloured strips. Motifs include two men in a canoe, a man with a caged bird, crocodiles, chiefs with umbrellas, various complex multibladed ceremonial swords etcetera. Cloths with this level of decoration were extremely expensive to commission and would only have been worn by the wealthiest men.'
