Bark cloth, maro
Pounded inner tree bark. Painted figurative design: two large sawfish surrounded by smaller fish, flying fox, and sun or starbursts. Also a few stylized human figures, one positioned outside the delineated frame. Very poorly mounted - no padding and sags but owner seems reluctant to have it removed and re mounted. Would allow outer frame removed. Second meaurement is with frame.
