The woven textile is carefully applied to a linen substrate, which provides a border between the textile and frame. This piece is offered in our lucite frame. Our signature gold St. Frank plate is featured in the bottom right-hand corner of each piece. The framed dimensions are 22" W x 13.5" H.

This dance skirt was traditionally worn by Kirdi women for rituals and rites of passage, such as marriage and the presentation of a newborn child. In addition to being decorative, the skirt was worn to protect against evil. As the dance skirt was only worn by women of marrying age, it was also seen as a sign of maturity. Different styles of dance skirts denote age, social status, and ethnic origin. For example, dance skirts with cowrie shells, such as this piece, represent status and prestige.
