This Shisha embroidery textile was woven in India in the middle of the 20th century.
It features elephants and flowers, alternating symmetrically in the vertical. Horizontally, it resembles the shape of a boot. The composition is rendered in vibrant hues of yellow, green, shades of pink, and some navy coloration for the elephants.
In very good condition, with the exception of a few little mirrors missing from the elephant eyes.
