Notes on Antique Textiles, Folk Art & Timeless Traditions – Jaina Mishra
Clearly this is a part of a larger legend that I am not familiar with yet.
And so the cultural crime story intrigues me as much as the art and the craft of the double sided embroidery.
These certainly do not look like pleasant incidents.
What is happening? Who is the woman? Who is the infant? Who are the men with swords? What is their motive?
Some kind of crime is in progress …
A quick search showed that infant related crimes are not uncommon in royal families all over the world! Stories of successors to thrones meeting unhappy endings are seen from Europe to Asia.
Are these such stories?
A few afternoons need to be earmarked for researching this!
What a pretty way to learn cultural history!
