    burmese spirit cloth

    83 X 88 CM Mid 20th century

     
    This cloth is believed to have healing / protective powers and the power to bring good luck to the owner.
     
    The charts address the cosmic forces and arrive at magic formulae that benefit the person this is created for.  Astrology, cosmology, numerology are intricately linked to the supernatural in ways that are understood by few today – lending a certain mysticism to the entire subject.
     
    These divination systems are used not only for daily-life planning but also for important events like marriages, building a home and even military engagements.
     
    This particular cloth is probably folk art done by an ordinary village resident rather than an artisan and that is a strong part of the appeal.
     
    If there is interest, I will provide other details/information available prior to purchase.
