Ceremonial Cloth, tampan pasisir

Paminggir People, Lampung
Cotton; supplementary weft
19th Century

Ritual cloths known as tampan were woven and exchanged both on the Lampung coast, pasisir, and interior, darat. Both featured potent iconography but of distinctly different styles, the coastal type being especially finely woven. The present example features a great boat with a central pavilion, multiple well drawn ancestor figures, a pair of elephants, royal umbrellas and a large helmsman on the far-right deck.
