677 SOLD Antique Sarpallu Phulkari Bagh Wedding Shawl from Punjab
Sold to a discerning Antique Art Lover
Amazing sarpallu with a broad palette!
The parent-child format of triangles that progress from the edges to the centre, with one particular motif on the right half and another on the left half - probably means something.
If only we had the cipher to these symbols!
Has some (water?) stains in the unembroidered portion. Some thread loss in the darker colored threads probably on account of dye corrosion.
