Notes on Culture & Antique Art, Ethnic Decor & Vintage Fashion | Wovensouls Art Gallery
A fabulous work of art that also presents us with a glimpse of textiles and costumes in use in India in the 17th century.
This rumal bears a date and shows scenes of courtly life involving figures in both Persian and Indian dress.
I counted 58 different textiles in this … can you find more?
From the collection of the Metropolitan Museum of Art.
More ‘textiles within textiles’ to follow.
The detail and artistry of this piece simply leaves me speechless!
