Kashmir Memories

This item is number 29 in the exhibition and the green background is made from a pharen, which is a sort of coat worn by men and women in Kashmir. If the wool is thin, they include a woollen lining and everyone carries a charcoal burning fire-pot underneath in the winter, so everyone looks pregnant.
I used Amish colours in the centre and the whole thing glows under light. As there is only one layer, it would probably have been wise to mount it on a thin board.
The stitching is like the reflections on the calm lakes where the houseboats wait for tourists.
