The Prayer Flag with Five Sihos




The Story:

The Prayer Flag with Five Sihos wall hanging features ikat woven squares with a Siho. A Siho is a half lion, half elephant creature from Lao legends. This beautiful and powerful motif is carrying a bird and flowers. This striking wall hanging features both ikat and supplementary weft weaving techniques. It is believed that the reeds woven into the flags will help carry the wishes of the weaver on the winds and pervade all things. Mrs. Daphone, Nin to her friends, is one of the original Ock Pop Tok weavers, over the last 20 years she has fine tuned her weaving skills and now as a Master Weaver has trained younger weavers in Laos.
