This textile is locally call Mau ana is full of the lifeforce and energy of how the natural resources were cared for that create the colour and texture of this piece. The teme or eagle motif (Haliaeetus luecogaster) with its long range eyesight and ability to descend rapidly from the air to the ground to capture its prey demonstrates superb prowess. This power is transmitted to the textile. The teme would be a kanaf (totem) or kin to the weaver and her clan in Timor and therefore could never hunt such a creature. It would be an honour to have it on the table.
