PROVENANCE

This art piece is made with a vintage piece textile created in Turkey and reveals a traditional Turkish design, known as the chintamani - three dots placed over two curved lines. This iconic motif is thought to originate from Buddhist philosophy and represent a wish-granting jewel. Repeated patterns such as these are characteristic of the decorative textiles found along the Silk Road. This original textile was created with a crochet technique and is made from silk thread on a silk-cotton blend backing.
