RangrangWoman’s Breast Wrap
In Bali woman will perform ritual dance in temples wearing a textile such as this that it made with an slit tapestry weave and wraps around the upper body. The small openings in the cloth are said to be what allow the spirit of the dancer to connect to the divine – the solid sections keep her in her body-the cloth aids her to move between the two dimensions.
Slit tapestry weave, single panel, twisted fringe, silk thread, natural dyes.
Made by Ni Nyoman Mastri, in East Bali. 2020.
