Antique Shawl, Country of Origin: India, Circa 1900 – This stunning antique shawl skillfully uses contrasting colors to convey a greater sense of completion in the piece. Viewers are treated to a delightful eggshell white background, the negative space spanning the length of the shawl before it is cut off by a brighter collection of figures and movements at the end of the piece. The two ends feature twin boteh that are set side by side with each other, their ocher and orange forms broken up by a bright purple figure that helps unify and complete the remaining elements and vibrant borders throughout.
