Textile, Laos, Early 20th Century – Crafted in Laos, this sophisticated antique textile features a stunning variety of cultural symbols and colorful lozenges that are set over a robust burgundy background. Intricate brocade stripes divide the elegant repeating pattern and create a strong partition that separates each series of symbolic emblems. A deep onyx-colored firmament completes the composition and creates a neutral area that highlights the strong, pure colors that adorn the stacked-lozenge motifs and serpentine figures that decorate the alternating compartments. Carefully selected hues of purple and gold and green and orange create a sophisticated pattern that uses strong opposing colors. This stunning antique textile is an outstanding representation of Laos’ exotic style, culture and history.
