Birds of Shambhala Applique Wall Hanging
Shambala is a mythical realm said to be located on earth, although not visible to the ordinary eye. Abounding with gardens, streams, snowy peaks, and beautiful music that seems to come from the air itself, Shambala is more like a paradise than any place on earth. The songbirds of Shambhala are not quite like those in our ordinary world. They are larger, more intelligent, and exceptionally good-natured. These magnificent birds nest in trees with sweet tasting fruits that cure all maladies.
Appliqu̩e is a special type of embroidery which makes use of many individual pieces to form an intricate patchwork design. Used mostly in Tibet for creating silk thangkas, we have adapted the appliqu̩e technique to create beautiful home furnishings such as cushions, bedcovers, and wall hangings. Instead of the figures of deities, traditional Tibetan motifs such as flowers, animals, and auspicious symbols are created using the highest quality silks and cotton hand-woven at Norbulingka.
100% Dupion Silk. Finished with wooden dowels and knobs on top and bottom for easy hanging.
