A wonderful panel from the Tangkhul Naga people.  Tribe members who exhibited prowess in warfare, or generosity in providing for community feasts, earned the right to embellish their homes in certain ways as well as adorn themselves with particular ornaments or shawls.  A person's status in the community could be readily determined by how their home was decorated and their  personal appearance.

This panel from a Tangkhul Naga home is a classic example of the aesthetic of this particular region of the Naga realm.  A very heavy wood panel carved in deep relief has been embellished with white and dark pigments as is typical.
