This elegant square panel was inspired by enamelled gold treasures from the Mughal empire. Combining goldwork and surface embroidery techniques, this tile is worked on an ivory satin background with silks, gold metallic threads, beads and tiny spangles. The design features a stylised vine, based on the arabesque, leaves in laid and couched work, and beaded grapes, all enclosed by an ornate narrow border worked in gold metallic threads and variegated rayon gimp.
