Lion of Punjab – Sher-e-Punjab

Punjab – the land that has been facing invasions for centuries – values bravery and courage. And the lion offers an excellent metaphor for these values.

Maharana Ranjit Singh was called Sher-e-Punjab that translates to Lion of Punjab.

So the lion metaphor is one that everyone in Punjab is familiar with.

What is unfamiliar is the presence of lion as the primary image in the phulkaris of Punjab.

Note the beautiful blue collar around the neck and the pink outline on the eyes.

The Lion Phulkari – asset 1397 on wovensouls.com is being studied and we’ll have some answers soon.

    This phulkari deserves a place of honor in a museum! Looking forward to learning more about it!

    I think so too! It is so unusual … the mihrabs, the moon … quite contrary to all others I’ve seen until now.

    I wouldn’t be surprised if there was a royal connection…
