Known locally as Mau ana, the color and texture of this Timorese textile reflect the lifeforce and energy of the revered natural resources that were used to create it.
With its long range eyesight and ability to descend rapidly from the air to capture prey, the white-bellied sea eagle (Haliaeetus luecogaster) demonstrates superb prowess. It is evoked here by the teme motif, which is a kanaf (totem) or kin of the weaver and her clan and would never be hunted by them.
