Antique Indian Shawl, Country of Origin: India, Circa Date: 1900 — A bright, fiery background sets the tone and scene for the rest of the shawl to follow. Through the skilled use of bordering, the viewer is led along a brightly colored line, one that mixes bright blues and reds with a milky white to create an incredible degree of contrast against the backdrop of the piece. The borders culminate in two boxes at either end of the shawl, which house two bright blue boteh within them, creating vibrant movement and flowing shapes through the piece.
