This intricate hand-crafted artwork was inspired by village life in Madagascar. It's name "trano soa" translates to "good house", as this piece represents the beauty and comfort of home. It depicts a colorful variety of homes and buildings which serve as the foundation of a local community.
The artwork is formed by connecting the collaged houses using a gridwork of twisted raffia, giving this piece a truly unique look that's sure to captivate you with its exquisite detail. It is hand-crafted from Madagascar cocoon silk and raffia.
Each piece of this limited edition work is a one-of-a-kind masterpiece and made as part of a month-long collaboration of the SEPALIM artisan team. It is a warm, welcoming artistic reflection of community and home.
