This listing is for a vintage Monumental Burmese Kalaga Tapestry From Appleton Museum of Art measuring about 60 1/2 inches by 126 inches , weighing about 26 lbs. net.
Kalaga is the traditional name for embroidered tapestries done entirely by hand from Myanmar (Burma). 
The ancient kalagas were made for the royal palaces. 
It is intricately embroidered using sequins, glass beads and such, braids, metallic and other threads on black velvet, silk or cotton. I would not be surprised if precious metals like silver and gold were used in the couched / embroidered work.
Padded areas have about one inch depth. 34 roundels make up the border  , and I think 31 ( count not verified but close to 31 if not 31 ) figures inside border , of People , Prince ,  Carriage , Elephant , Throne , Soldiers? Floral Details.....
These are scenes from the ancient epic Hindu poem, the Ramayana, or from Buddhist mythology. Every bit of the finished piece is covered so you can imagine that a large piece could take months or even years to make. 
Top back has a strip of white cotton fabric sewn on the back which I guess was used to hang the piece.
Museum Inventory Number is written on a piece of cotton fabric and sewn on the lower back.
In excellent as shown condition. A total of I think 16 pink and clear glass beads have come off ( off of probably thousands ) , which was attached in a small plastic bag to the tapestry , which I will ship along.
Overall it is pretty clean with exception of minor sweating on back side from hanging. 
I have just lightly vacuumed this piece while in my possession.
It will be shipped folded  as shown and boxed for shipment.
I usually post many more images on my listing than the 12 listed on eBay gallery which only will be visible to individuals on classic eBay site ( that would be when item is viewed on a computer) . Images are continuous and have an order ( front , back, sides, etc.. ) and should be viewed in continuous fashion.
