Framed Embroidered Bojagi Wrapping Cloth with Peonies, Irises, Maple Leaves, Cherry Blossoms, and Chrysanthemums, framed in a deep frame of exotic Korean paulownia wood. Korean embroidery is distinguished from other East Asian embroidery by its three-dimensionality, the product of the unique Korean technique of twisting multiple threads together in various thicknesses, as opposed to the use of single threads by embroidery artists in other countries. The deep frame adds to the three-dimensionality. Frame: 18.5 x 18.5 inches, 47 x 47 cm; 13 x 13 inches, 33 x 33 cm.
