Large Hand Embroidered Panel On Silk - Part Painted - Robed Man - Russian? Greek For Sale
This large-scale hand embroidered picture measures 36" x 31" from edge to edge (91cms x 78cms). The man's face, hands and feet have been painted; the rest is covered with silk embroidery threads, either couched down or satin type stitch. (My second picture - where one strand has been loosened - shows the knobbly texture of some of the threads. The colours are vibrant and the background silk is an eau de nil. As my picture shows, the man's face has cracks in the paint - probably due to having been rolled up. I would imagine this picture is at least 100 years old, and possibly Russian or Greek. It is in good condition, although the background silk, as to be expected, is starting to show dark spots near the edge. In the right setting, a stunning piece on a large scale.
