African Batik Textile - Fish, Guinea Fowl, Foliage, Tribal Design 34" X 56" - Handmade Zimbabwe

This batik in colors of brown, gold, sienna, sand and white, is bordered with charcoal over sand colored design and sand fringe at the bottom and top.
This 100% cotton batik fabric is called back weave, a thick, handwoven fabric that is similar to mud cloth with a tighter and finer weave and lighter weight.
The symbols and images throughout this traditional Zimbabwe Batik, show the individual artist's perception of art in their environment.
This handwoven and hand painted batik has all the elements of a handmade item which makes it perfectly unique rather than the perfection of machine.
The beautiful item looks great as a wall hanging, tapestry, throw, framed, or any other interesting way you would like to use it.
