Daily Art Fix – An Antique Robe with Amli Embroidery

Works such as these remind us of the value added simply by the skill of an artist!

The wool and the silk and the scissors could have made a robe that would have commanded a reasonable price.

But the talent & skill of the man or men who added the embroidery make it a priceless work of art!
