1960s Woven Macrame Tapir Wall Hanging Sculpture


This terrific sculpture was created by hand weaving "braids" of wool, and joining together to form the body of the tapir. The body is stuffed with a filling material, while flat on the back. The braided material is in excellent original condition, clean and solid. We have replaced the muslin fabric on the back (wall) side, and added hanging loops and wooden hooks. The overall effect is amazing!
