moroccan berber tent bag. Known as "Anoual", this type of piled bag acts as a cushion or pillow and is usally part of a dowry. It is an old example in remarkably good condition with all original fastening loops intact. The bag is from the Berbers of Ait bou Ichaouen in the eastern High Atlas close to the border with Algeria. There are entirely different designs on each side. One is extremely rare and depicts a flight of Potez 25 bi-planes used by the French colonial government to bomb the rebellious Ait Hammou Berbers in the early 1930s. The Berbers have long memories. The incident and designs which commemorate it are described in the excellent research book "Ait bou Ichaouen". The second side depicts a large "evil eye" motif which in Berber superstition protects the owner from bad luck. This is an important and rare example of its kind. Reference 2664. Size 42 x 88 cms., or 17 x 35 inches. Euros 390.
