Large Fijian Tapa Cloth
Handmade, pounded bark created the fabric and the pattern is hand-painted with natural dyes. In Fiji, this linen-like barkcloth is called Masi. Wherever it's made in the Pacific, it is regarded as one of the region's finest and most distinctive art forms.

There are two sections, apparently glued together (can possibly be separated.)
One section has a bleed from the dye, it was purchased like that.
This is a large piece of art or wall-hanging. Estimated to be 30-40 years old. Measures: 54" x 75.5"
