Ref.: Saz4ylw ------- "Woven words" (sasigyo or sarsekyo - sanskrit: "100 words") ‘sazigyo’ were tablet-weaving of text woven tapes or ribbons used for binding the leaves of palm-leaf manuscripts. Measuring up to 9 meters long, but only 11 to 35 mm wide, many sazigyo are woven with long texts of a prayer naming the donors of manuscript and binding tape, and recording their deed of merit. Neat geometrical motifs and little woven images of beasts, birds and fishes punctuate the text. All relate to the meritorious deed of donation. Devotional objects used in pagoda visits, such as bells, flag posts, and fig-trees also appear on the tapes. Some of these images are woven with breathtaking skill. Many tapes are dated, and some are signed by the woman weaver, who may even add the price she charged for her work. All of tapes are pre 1970 when this craft was declared extinct.
