Woman’s Breast Wrap

In Bali, women will perform ritual dance in temples wearing a textile such as this, made with slit tapestry weave, wrapped around the upper body.

The small openings in the cloth are said to allow the spirit of the dancer to connect to the Divine while the solid sections keep her in her body. Thus the cloth aids her in moving between the worlds.

Slit tapestry weave, single panel, twisted fringe, silk thread, natural dyes.
Made by Ni Nyoman Madri, in East Bali. 2020.
220 x 80 cm
