Embroidery (fragment), Gujarat, mid 19th Century, 3' 4" x 8"

An excellent example of silk on linen embroidery from west India. Probably once the border of a larger panel, the open drawing of the design coupled with brilliant colors suggest an aesthetic that might actually date earlier than the proposed mid 19th century dating.
