Notes on Culture & Antique Art, Ethnic Decor & Vintage Fashion | Wovensouls Art Gallery
Rare Darshan Dwar Phulkari.
Also showcases scenes from life in the place of origin.
We see human figures with raised hands that may be interpreted as goodbyes between the bride and her maternal family at the time of her Muklawa after the wedding.
We also see noserings & a variety of farm animals strewn about in the field between the dwar motifs.
Condition is generally good and no stark imperfections are noticeable. However, given the age of the textile artwork, some deficiencies must be expected in the form of thread loss, stains, repairs etc.
Estimated to be from the 1940s-50s
Punjab, Undivided India.
This item has spent a lifetime being used for the purpose of its creation with the original artist/user. Signs of this life lived heartily may be present on the piece in the form of stains, thread loss, loose threads, holes, tears, color run and other imperfections. Therefore the condition must be assumed to be “not” perfect. More photos of such imperfections will be provided on request.
