This is small but powerfull Tree of Life hanging/wall art measuring ca. 32x32cm (13x13'').
It is hand embroidered in vintage red and blue darning threads and the petals are cut out from vintage red kimono silk and denim. Each petal is attached to the background with an embroidery stitch which gives a raised 'veiny' effect to the leaves, if you look at them closely. I didn't use any glue so the petals are naturally fraying at the edges (which I very much like) and which lends the whole piece its delicacy and uniqueness. The background is coarse cotton/linen mix which I believe also gives the piece a folksy look.

The tree of life is a motif used throughout philosophies, cultures and times and is an allegory for immortality. This particular one is from an old Indian Kantha (traditional Indian embroidered quilt made in layers of silk fabric). You can read more about this embroidery here: http://kaftansarafan.blogspot.com/2010/10/tree-of-life-by-kaftansarafan.html

The embroidered fabric is stretched on a wooden subframe and framed in a solid untreated oak 'tray' frame. It is on sale because the frame didn't come out perfectly well, and is slightly off on one side. If you need more photos, please let me know.


This small but powerful image is perfect to brighten up any area of your home, a front room, bedroom, play room, hallway. It is perfect as a gift for a person who is hard to buy presents for.
