'Giant appliqué textile art is a specialized form that creates large-scale ceremonial and religious textiles often based on painted examples. These works of art are especially known for their size, which can be monumental. The early history and origins of this giant textile tradition has not yet been fully studied and published.' (Shinzo Shiratori).
