Phoenixes Applique Wall Hanging
The phoenix, born again from the ashes of his previous body, is a symbol of eternal life, resurrection, and transformation. He is also a bearer of good fortune and prosperity.
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.
