Green cat border 1935.32.0173

MOTIF DESCRIPTION

The motif consists of geometrically shaped felines with long “horns”, hooks with wedges on them.  At the end of all these large hooks are smaller heads with hooks.  The whole pattern is remarkable for its many shades of green.  On one long side there is a narrow border with simplified and reduced patterning in the same direction as the main border.

MATERIALS AND TECHNIQUE

Ground weave:  cotton.  Embroidery:  camelid fibre in mixed greens, mid-blue, yellow, mid-green, red, pink and blue.  Technique:  plain weave fabric, embroidery in linear style.  The background green is nuanced.  The fringe on one long side was secured with stemstitch.
