This stunning tapestry titled TRIMURAT, (three faces), deviated from Petit Point and Needle Point and employs a combination of Florentine and long-and-short forms of embroidery. It is both abstract and contemporary. Multi-hued woolen strands in glorious greens, depthless blues, and passionate purples weave a vocabulary of contemporary mystique and endow this hand-embroidered heirloom with a unique visage. This artwork took approximately three months in the making.
