A Garment

This garment decoration with figures is from the early Byzantine, 6th century. This garment would be hanging under an arcade. It is made out of wool linen.  The figures are hard to make out, but they look like they are dancing or carrying different objects. There is a pretty red vine design on the thin side garment that hangs vertical on the wall.  These garments were most likely decoration for a church. I would like this hanging on my wall, because I like the figures, and it reminds me of the figures that Incan or Mayan may have drawn.
