siapo (Tapa Cloth)

Physical description

Rectangular tapa cloth with geometric patterns in dark brown and yellow on a tan base. Dark brown pinwheels are bordered by diamond patterns. These sequences alternate between two yellow diamonds and a black diamond with the black shapes falling at the corners of the pinwheels. Shapes are separated from one another by dark brown lines, giving the cloth a grid-like appearance. One edge is decorated with a series of dark brown hour glass shapes.
