Stunning embroidered bird tapestry wall art, three blue birds in a tree expertly hand embroidered in silk on black velvet by zardozi artisans. Ornate blue border with genuine lapis lazuli stones, sewn in. Expertly framed under acrylic.
Captivating from a distance, but even more intriguing and mesmerizing close up, where you become lost in amazement at all the intricate details.
The birds 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. This tapestry takes months to complete.
These are birds found only in the artist's imagination. Adding to the realism, the body of the birds and the tree branch are rendered 3D by embroidering over layers and layers of underlying floss.
Silk mimics the soft sheen of bird feathers. You find yourself wanting to reach out and touch the soft feathers.
Note the wonderful composition and the natural, alert, realistic posture of the birds. The artist has truly captured the bird's alert and inquisitive personality. Note the meticulous detail and craftsmanship - the realistic eye, the remarkable shading of the feathers, the vibrant silk colors, the harmonious color palette.
Extraordinary 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!
