When a child is born \u2013 so is the mother!\n***\nSome women knit for their babies. Others embroider.\nAnd we have works of love being created, as the woman pours out all her emotion for her unborn baby into the creation.\nSometimes, these works of love, are also works of timeless art.\nAn example of such art from Kohistan:\n\n \nEmbroidery that wraps the warp & the weft of the base cloth\u2026. so finely done that I cannot imagine the demands on the artist\u2019s eyes!\nThis vest probably fits a toddler \u2013 one that will be too big for a few months, just right for a few and then too small for a few. A year of usage is what it will see with each baby until it is handed down to the next child. Maybe the mother will add a few embellishments when it is time for the new baby. Ir change the inner lining. Or add a few motifs.\nFor every artist knows that no artwork is ever complete\u2026\nThere\u2019s always room for one more soul to be infused into it!\n***\nTo view more images of the textile, click here. \n\u00a0\njm\nMarch 2015\nThe post A Child Gives Birth to a Mother appeared first on The Art Blog by WOVENSOULS.COM.
