Rare Antique Mughal Imperial Tent Panel Needlework
This panel was probably one of a series of identical panels used to line the tent of the temporary camps set up along the caravan routes of the Mughal emperors. Writing about Aurangzeb’s camp in 1665, the French physician François Bernier described linings with representations of large vases of flowers, much like this extremely fine needlework example. This is done with floss silk needle stitched on a fine silk base. The original rust color backing is made of linen and still in perfect condition.
Amazing world class work of WovenArts.
