A Length of Pictorial Shibori: Two Phoenixes
early to mid twentieth century
51" x 13", 129.5 cm x 33 cm
This nice sized length of indigo dyed cotton cloth is dyed in the shibori method and it shows two very beautifully rendered phoenixes in flight, their wings spread as they soar through a background of dotted shibori arabesques.
The cotton is hand woven and is of a good weight; the indigo color is rich an velvety.
A wonderful piece of pictorial shibori that shows a very well-designed image of the legendary phoenix.
