Description:
Lienzo (panel) Long single cotton panel of white warp and ground cloth. Extensively covered with thick supplementary weft yarn (may be acrylic, not tested). Weft designs include birds, flowers, and geometric shapes in predominantly purples greens and black. Supplementary weft is double sided, but not double faced. Both warp ends cut and left with short fringe. Some loose threads and fraying, especially around the selvages. Cotton fabric hand sewn to the back appears to have been added later, possibly for hanging.
