Five gold embroidered lions gambol across the intense red silk background of this late Qing wall hanging. The heavy silk is lined and backed with a darker red silk, which along with the gold embroidery gives the piece weight. Heavy doubled strands of gold are couched in contours to form the frolicking lions, or fou dogs, and the surrounding streamers, balls and clouds. Metallic blue thread is couched to define tails, manes and other details. Five pairs of huge black eyes are done in satin stitch. The top of the hanging is defined with a flowing gold couched design. The hanging is in good condition, with just a few faint smudge marks on the red background. Dimensions: height 35” (89 cm), width 18” 46 cm). SEE MORE ITEMS IN OUR COLLECTION AT WWW.SILKROAD1.COM
