Smithsonian Institution Exclusive

Exceptionally beautiful and intricate henna motifs grace this magnificent Smithsonian The Artful Hand of Henna Table Runner. 100% cotton. Dry clean only.
These stunning Smithsonian-exclusive designs reprise the intricate pyro-engraved geometries of a Nigerian henna gourd in the collections of our National Museum of African Art. After beautifying henna motifs were drawn on a woman’s hand, she placed her arm in the gourd to protect the pattern until the dye stained her skin.
72"l. x 18.5"w.

"The photo for this needs a better resolution (as many Smithsonian products do) and when it arrived I was disappointed to see that the colors are not accurate. I wanted an orange shade to match the appearance of the decorative bowl in the photo, but it is a lighter, almost yellow shade and won't work for me. Also, a close-up photo would have been helpful to actually see the pattern of the print. Still, it is a nice piece if you want something that looks Indian."
