Textile fragment with geometric shapes, probably from a tunic

Details

  • Catalogue text

    A repeating geometric motif composed of triangles, hooks and a central diamond is arranged in diagonal rows, with a line of triangles above and a border of geometric plants below. The diagonal rows alternate in colour between pink and brown. The design forms a wide band which has a fine pink border of inverted V-shapes along one side, and a brown band with mostly disintegrated geometric designs along the hem line.

    There is a finely rolled hem. The fragment probably was part of a tunic.
