Extremely Fine Geometric Pedan or Pidan
A finely woven Ikat artwork from Cambodia
The silk is glossy and brown borders are attached around the Pedan.
No backing present.
Acquired in 2008 or 2009 from one of the groups that are engaged in the revival effort outside Siem reap.
A piece that is very difficult to photograph (as are all Cambodian silk ikats!)
123 x 119cm
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.
