Yet Again - The perky little Parrot

   In context to Indian motifs the parrot plays an important just as the peacock . Wide variety of motifs in different mediums are created using the parrot as inspiration  .

      Here`s another quick project I made using parrot as the focal theme . ( The earlier post can be viewed  here   ).

    The motif style is from Gujarat embroidery, where the embroidery is done in bold blocks of eye-catching and contrasting colors . The stitch I`ve used is herringbone , on  silk fabric. I created the motif by sketching and then duplicating to get a pair of parrots

                 Now all that remains is a wooden roll on the top so that  it can be hung on a wall .
