Hybrid Art 6 – Swat Pillow Case

A hybrid textile that memetically straddles two worlds …

The motif is from Caucasus region and often seen in wool rugs while the execution in this piece from the Swat Valley has been done in silk embroidery is from the Swat Valley.

How did this motif or meme migrate?

The exploration of this history would be as interesting as the discovery of two worlds within this textile.
