Embroidered bird tapestry wall art. Dapper and debonair blue pheasant hand embroidered 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 and the branch are 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.
This bird exists only in the artist's imagination. Note the artistic composition and the natural, alert posture of the bird. The artist has captured the essence of the bird's personality. He is a proud Hollywood leading man from a previous era, fashionable, a gentleman about town. He certainly knows that he is handsome.
Silk perfectly captures the soft sheen of bird feathers and the luxurious tail. You want to instinctively touch the bird to feel how soft he is.
Framed by an ornate embroidered border with semi precious stones, and professionally framed under acrylic.
This is an 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. Now you too can own a work of art once reserved only for royalty!
