Large selection of kuba panels, made from palm leaves which have been dyed in natural tones of ocre, cinammon and umbre. They are skilfully woven into irregular geometric patterns which, together with their textured weave, leads to the creation of a visually dynamic and decorative piece of wall art.
Creation of these panels is still ongoing, by the Congolese. Traditionally men weave the panel on a small hand and women embroider geometric patterns onto the panel. In the past these panels were used as body wraps, mats, blankets and for currency exchanges.
Good overall condition.
There are nine panels available, each one is over 3 metres long and 50 – 60 cm wide.
