The dancing figures in this banner, or ma’a, are rendered in the style of figures in 16th century Jain temple paintings. This banner was made in India, probably on the Coromandel Coast, which for many centuries was a centre for expert production of dyed cottons known as chintzes. The banner was made for the southeast Asian market, specifically Sulawesi, Indonesia.
