Exquisite bright green silk parrot wall art, expertly hand embroidered on black velvet by skilled zardozi artisans, using silk, metallic threads and genuine semi precious stones.
The body of 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. And silk is perfectly suited to capture the soft sheen of bird feathers. You want to reach out and touch his soft feathers.
The artist has captured the personality of the bird. Such a curious and friendly fellow. He is looking you right in the eye and listening to every word you say. I assure you that you will be talking to him....
Extraordinary and unique gift for a parrot lover or bird lover, or for anyone who loves and appreciates embroidery.
Wall mount it, or use it as a lid on a memory box or photo album.
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!
