Kalamkari Rumal

Not on view

Delightful scenes fill the ground of this rumal: a music performance; a look between lovers; figures sewing, hunting, and dancing; and a royal group. Although unrelated, the vignettes are united by the application of pattern to all elements of the textile and a busy background of trees, plants, rocky outcrops, and animals in action.
