Name: Tiger Cotton Door Curtain
Traditionally, in Laos, houses did not have internal doors. Instead, door curtains would be used in place of a door, and motifs, both mythological and natural, would be woven into the door curtain to provide spiritual protection to those using the room. The curtain would be pushed to the side as people entered and exited the door. This door curtain handwoven with handspun, naturally dyed cotton weft and a cotton blend warp for strength, and filled with larger tigers, and smaller elephant, flower, bird, and butterfly motifs.
