Zhuang Blanket Fragment
Almost the size of a baby blanket, this gorgeous fragment is a fine example of this genre with excellent embroidery and beautiful, mellowed colors. The main motif is concentric lines of cats, or perhaps protective fou dogs, bordering running, indigo diamonds containing stylized flowers. It is finely made with good matching at the seam. Mostly silk on ramie, with only the indigo motifs in cotton. A border of black cotton is a recent addition. Condition is very good, with a small original repair and no holes.
Size: Field: 26.75″ x 24.25″; OA: 35.75″ x 33.25″
