Embroidered bird tapestry wall art. Exquisite purple crane posing in a green grassland, expertly hand embroidered in silk on black velvet, by master zardozi artisans, using silk, metallic threads and genuine semi precious stones.
Captivating from a distance, but even more intriguing and mesmerizing close up, where you become lost in amazement at all the intricate details.
The bird is realistically rendered in 3D by a labor intensive technique of embroidering over layers and layers of underlying floss. Very few embroiderers are accomplished in this specialized technique.
Note the realistic natural pose of the bird and the gorgeous fluffy plumage. Silk perfectly captures the soft sheen of bird feathers. We see the crane's personalities. Note the meticulous detail and craftsmanship - the realistic eye, the remarkable shading of the feathers, the vibrant silk colors, the harmonious color palette. Framed by an ornate embroidered border with genuine carnelian stones, sewn in.
Extraordinary and unique gift for a bird lover, or for anyone who loves and appreciates embroidery. It is certain to become a modern heirloom.
Zardozi means "gold thread". It is an elaborate multidimensional embroidery art form using gold and silver threads and genuine precious and semi precious stones to create an opulent 3D effect. Zardozi was introduced into India in the early 16th century and was used mainly to adorn the robes and household items of the royal families. It has been modernized by the use of silk. Now you too can own a work of art once reserved only for royalty!
