Daily Art Fix – An Antique Robe with Amli Embroidery

February 04, 2018 1 min read

Works such as these remind us of the value added simply by the skill of an artist!

The wool and the silk and the scissors could have made a robe that would have commanded a reasonable price.

But the talent & skill of the man or men who added the embroidery make it a priceless work of art!
