Extraordinary embroidered peacock wall art. Magnificent peacock expertly hand embroidered on black velvet by skilled artisans in the zardozi tradition using silk, metallic threads and semi precious stones, to create a dazzling 3D effect. Exquisite details and exceptional embroidery.
The body of the peacock and the tree 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.
Glittery metallic threads and luminous silk capture the iridescent quality of peacock feathers. The glorious tail feathers have a coppery glittery effect which is not possible to capture in a photo. The beautiful floral border is in a metallic blue with genuine green onyx stones, sewn in. This piece is a show stopper!
Perfect gift for a peacock or bird lover! Hang it where you see it every day and it will remind you to be as confident and proud as a peacock!
Zardozi means "gold thread" . It is an elaborate and opulent art of multidimensional embroidery using gold and silver threads and embellished with precious and semi precious stones to create a dazzling and opulent 3D effect. Zardozi was introduced into India in the early 16th century and was used mainly to adorn the robes of the royal families. Now you can own a piece of art once reserved for royalty!
