Am I imagining the “Chromosome double helix” motif?
Superb colors. Superb silk.
Note the green selvedge embroidery.
Age unknown but estimated to be 50-60 years old
134 x 242cm
The stitch type is the sparse dovetail type which is usually seen in large-layout non-repeated pattern phulkaris with very creative art.
The color shades vary depending on the angle and so several photos taken in the same minute and same lighting conditions have been provided to allow for complete visual assessment.
Lovely lime green and rarely-seen plum red-maroon.
The black & white image highlights the pattern.
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.
