Banjara Neck Cover (‘gala’)
Softly faded, this artful old ‘gala’ has a nicely graphic design in natural colors. All cotton, with a border in indigo, printed cotton, it is in good condition, with typical wear and holes only on the backing. Cowrie shells border three sides and wool tassels ornament the corners and centers of the three sides; an amuletic ‘pouch’ is top center. These old ‘galas’ are not often found.
