Overall Condition Excellent. Most of our pieces have spent decades on at least two continents, and have been treasured by several owners.   Small splits, scrapes and cracks are a normal part of their patina attesting to their age and extensive use.  We examine each piece carefully when we receive it and report any damage we find in our listings.  Please look carefully at the pictures which may also reveal condition and damage.

Traditional music with dancing is an important and integral part of east African culture performed at many festive ceremonies, religious events, and political rallies.

 The batiks are produced following standard templates. Although similar no two are identical even by the same artist. Each one is unique and an individual tapestry. From a distance the batiks will appear to be identical, close inspection will show slight differences in color patterns and design due to the work being done free hand. Also, background colors may vary slightly from the listing photographs due to different batches of dyes and style of background finish.

The unframed, pastel, paint and pen batik, on 100% medium to heavy African cotton canvas is a magnificent and unique tapestry.

 Kiwanuka, a Ugandan-born artist has several studios throughout East Africa. The studios have many artists; however, all are produced under the original founder’s signature to his original designs, colors, and templates. The batiks offered are produced mainly from the Thika facility about 100km from Nairobi in Kenya.
