THE STORY BEHIND
The peacock feather represented kindness, compassion, good luck, patience & benevolence. Asian culture:- the Peacock is associated with Quan Yin who is an emblem of love, good-will & kindness. Buddhist:- Peacock feathers are associated with openness as the bird displays everything when they spread their feathers.
THE ARTISTIC PROCESS
Each item is individually hand made. The design silk begins in natural white silk with the artistic design drawn by hand with a gutta resist.
WITH FRENCH SILK DYES the color is applied by hand with paint brushes creating brilliant results.
WHEN DRY the painted silk is steam set to permanently set the color. Once steaming is complete each piece is individually hand washed and ironed.
THESE ART PIECES take time and each are unique in their own way. I have made my best effort to show proper coloring of the silk and artwork in my photos,
THE FINISHED painted silk is preshrunk and completely colorfast. Each mask is hand cut which may result in slight variations in the finished size.
