Miao Baby Carrier Panel

Woven with a lively pattern of alternating diamonds, each of a different design, this fine silk on silk panel once decorated a Miao baby carrier in Guizhou Province. Most prominent of the motifs are stylized flowers and a meander, both rendered finely in several shades of dark purple silk; pink weft stripes break up the surface at approximately 3/4" intervals. Two of three sections appear to have been overdyed with dark pink and purple, giving it an unusual, idiosyncratic quality.

Sorry, but this item has been SOLD.
