This is a Textile. We acquired it in 1987. Its medium is silk and its technique is 7&1 satin weave with continuous (green and yellow) and discontinuous (2 reds, yellow and textured blue) supplementary wefts. the continuous wefts are bound into the structure in twill binding; the discontinuous wefts float on the back. It is a part of the Textiles department.
