Noblewoman’s Skirt  Ntchak
Kuba kingdom, DR Congo
20th century
Raffia palm fiber, applique, embroidery, natural dyes
276 x 32 inches  
710 x 81 cm
A complete skirt in excellent condition which has been in a Belgian collection. The designs flow across the length of the skirt in a dynamic yet harmonious and lyrical manner. Abstract figures in motion, a strong interplay of field and ground, and highly kinetic interelated patterns are the sign of a superior Kuba artist at work. 
For reference see Weaving Abstraction by Vanessa Drake Moraga, The Textile Museum, Washington DC  2011
