Clearly this is a part of a larger legend that I am not familiar with yet.\nAnd so the cultural crime story intrigues me as much as the art and the craft of the double sided embroidery.\nThese certainly do not look like pleasant incidents.\nWhat is happening? Who is the woman? Who is the infant? Who are the men with swords? What is their motive?\n\nSome kind of crime is in progress \u2026\nA quick search showed that infant related crimes are not uncommon in royal families all over the world! Stories of successors to thrones meeting unhappy endings are seen from Europe to Asia.\nAre these such stories?\nA few afternoons need to be earmarked for researching this!\nWhat a pretty way to learn cultural history!\n\u00a0\nDec 2017\njaina mishra | wovensouls\nView more Exquisite Antique Textiles and more on \n\nThe post Mother & Child \u2013 A Crime Scene in Silk appeared first on The Art Blog by WOVENSOULS.COM.
