Intricate 18th Century Indian Embroidery Textile 49099, Country of Origin: India, Circa Date: 18th Century – True to the beautiful style of Indian embroidery, this stunning antique textile is meant to convey a scene rather than represent floral design patterns or grounding borders. The unified tone used to define the landscape is earthy in its design, clearly representing a natural ground that is meant to comfortably house the subjects at the forefront of the masterpiece. Here, the viewer can observe the arrangement of arboreal elements with living creatures. Birds and deer mark the landscape, their presence broken up here and there by the inclusion of people. Some are hunters depicted atop horses while others simply stand richly dressed, enjoying conversation.
