Dancing Duo is a magnificent kalaga framed in two layers of rich raw silk a pale lilac and black. The detail is rich in sequin and couched metalic thread. There is a sleeve at the top to allow easy hanging. The grace of the dancers is accenuated by thier holding hands as they dance. There are three Hinthe Birds at the top. The hamsa is an aquatic bird of passage, which various scholars have interpreted as the goose or the swan. Its icon is used in Southeast Asian culture as a spiritual symbol and a decorative element. The Hinthe is famed as the bird with the most pleasant voice
There are Angels at the four corners.
