Miao Vintage Embroidery Panel
Geometric Red/Green Floral with Fish
Date unknown. This unique piece would have most likely been a part of a highly decorative baby carrier.
Hand embroidered and stitched. Silk on silk with plain indigo cotton backing. Black fringing with hand beaten silver metal beads. Predominantly coil stitch. Some wear visible.
With an abundance of geometric flora, this panel symbolises wealth and vitality. The scrolling waves suggest the Miao people’s journey from the river to the mountains. The fish represent good fortune.
