FOR PRE-ORDER Stunning blue bird tapestry, expertly hand embroidered in silk on black velvet by skilled zardozi artisans, using silk, metallic threads and genuine semi precious stones. The birds and tree branches 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.
These imaginary birds exist only in the artist's imagination. Note the gorgeous and accurate plumage of the birds. Silk perfectly captures the soft sheen of bird feathers. You find yourself unconsciously wanting to touch the birds and ruffle their feathers. Note the wonderful composition, how the artist has captured the bird's alert and inquisitive nature. Note the meticulous detail and craftsmanship - the realistic eye, the remarkable shading of the feathers, the vibrant silk colors, the harmonious color palette. An ornate border embellished with genuine lapis lazuli stones surrounds the tapestry. Expertly framed in a gorgeous, detailed shadow box frame, under acrylic.
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 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 adapted to modern times by the addition of silk.
