Woven Panels

Mbole, DRC

Two Woven Bark Fibre Decorative Panels. 1930’s. Mbole Culture, DRC

Woven panels such as this would have decorated the walls of a Mbole meeting house. The panels are made from woven bark fibre decorated with striking geometric designs. The dark-coloured strands of fibre, used to create the bold abstract decorations against a pale background, have been dyed with the roots of the banana tree.

These panels have been mounted on a custom-made mount. Each panel is unique - no two panels are the same. 

Ex Private Collection, Brussels 

Estimated Period: 1930s
