149 Off White Dhaniyo Plain Girls

Wall Decor Panel with Embroideryí«í_

Used to cover their household effects by gypsy tribes from Kutch, this piece of cloth is beautified with embroidery.í«í_

Every community uses materials, stitches & motifs that are often the signatures of their identity.

Motifs in this one include a pair of women churning buttermilk, peacocks, tulsi plants, saathiyo (rangoli) and girls atop twin birds? This minimalist piece has been created by the Rjput community in Kutch.

Handwoven base cloth - hand embroidery. A good example of naive art.

LITERATURE REFERENCE :A younger example of a similar Dhaniyo may be seen on pages 38 in 'Indian Textiles' by John Gillow & Nicholas Bernard
