Catalogue Description:
A single tapestry panel with an alternating pattern of human heads wearing tasseled, four-cornered hats, and fanged supernatural beings with a protruding tongues. A hole in the center of this textile was cut at a later date, indicating that it was probably worn as a tunic. Condition: Fair overall. Side seams have been cut and the textile is open and flat. The overall woven structure remains intact, but there are some small losses in the dark areas.
