A Naga architectural panel carved in deep relief from a single piece of wood. Tribe members who exhibited prowess in warfare, or provided community feasts earned the right to decorate their homes with certain images, allowing their status to be easily determined. Depicts two male and one female figures, large striped cat-like beasts and snakes, possibly the owner's "totems" or family emblems. This panel is from a Naga home. Early 20th Century, Nagaland.
