Notes on Culture & Antique Art, Ethnic Decor & Vintage Fashion | Wovensouls Art Gallery
Superbly crafted Odisha Tribal Anklets
Beautifully placed design elements
Rigid Torque-like form for the feet.
Age unknown but estimated to be 50-60 years old
May contain silver but percent unknown.
Some dents, staining, patina present.
Condition is far from perfect as it has been used by tribal women throughout a life which is deeply integrated with the earth.
This item has spent a lifetime being used for the purpose of its creation with the original artist/user. Signs of this life lived heartily may be present on the piece in the form of stains, thread loss, loose threads, holes, tears, color run and other imperfections. Therefore the condition must be assumed to be “not” perfect. More photos of such imperfections will be provided on request.
