African Batik Textile- Turtle, Fish, Guinea Fowl,Tribal Design Black, White, Wine -36" X 58" - Handmade Zimbabwe
This vintage batik is handmade in Zimbabwe using traditional natural dyes and fabrics bringing elements of the earth as well as, guinea fowl, fish, turtle and tribal design symbols. This batik in colors of black, white, burgundy, is bordered with black strips over sand colored design.
This style of batik is is somewhat different than most in my shop as each artist has their own style, you will come to recognize the difference in the work. I met this lady's son in Cape Town and he sent me to his mother in Zimbabwe for her unique style of batik.
The symbols and images throughout the traditional Zimbabwe Batik, show the individual artist's perception of art and their environment.
What makes the batiks in my shop unique is that they are one of a kind and totally the vision of the artist. There may be a similar one but no two are alike. This happens because in Zimbabwe,
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.
It will work great as a wall hanging, tapestry, throw, framed, or any other interesting way you would like to use it.
