Fowler In Focus: Spirits in the Loom: Religion and Design in Lao-Tai Textiles

January 10 – May 1, 2016

The intriguing Lao-Tai textiles in this exhibition were collected by Professor Ellison Banks Findly in northeastern Laos. These textiles, produced by Tai weavers, reflect religious and spiritual beliefs, incorporating Buddhist and Hindu mythology and shamanistic practices. Findly’s extensive research illuminates how women in these communities interpret the significance of the images, designs and materials in the textiles they produce and use.
