condition: good – small discolorations

A rare find – this is an original embroidered panel that was never cut into a garment nor worn. Note strong ‘cross’ composition exploding with circular star extensions – a clean and clear composition in shape, pattern and coloring applications. But wait – is that actual embroidery overlapping different base fabrics on the right & left sleeves? … where mill woven pieces of black/yellow/orange striped cloth are embroidered over ? Strange. Nice. These two mill pcs add an incredible dynamic quality to this artwork, let alone that they are perpendicular to each other.

Originally a Kanjeri Choli garment : ‘Kanjari’ is a embroidered women’s blouse that extends below the waist, originating from Katchchh (Kutch), Gujurat, India. Color and shape motifs describe specific tribal cultures of the region we would not even attempt to decipher. Mirrors ward off the ‘evil eye’. (May be purchased for decorative or protection purposes.)
