Description: Far East, South China, Yao / Mien, ca. 1900 CE. A fine and rare heirloom wedding blanket of an intricately woven geometric design from the Yao, sometimes referred to as the Mien, culture. The textile is made from three panels of hand spun and hand woven cotton with natural dyes in hues of indigo blue, pale pink, light blue, and tawny beige, together presenting a traditional design comprised of stylized geometric motifs, the entire composition bordered with black linen. The Yao are a widespread ethnic people with branches in China, Thailand, and Vietnam -- a Daoist/Taoist culture that blends ancient animist beliefs with Chinese Daoist philosophy. Hence, their textile designs boast a great variety. Size: blanket measures 36.375" L x 25.375" W (92.4 cm x 64.5 cm); with black linen border measures 51.5" L x 41.5" W (130.8 cm x 105.4 cm)
