Yuki - i110 Kit

by Margaret Lee

Elegant panel of traditional snow motifs in Japanese goldwork.

Description

Textile designs have always reflected the delicate sensibilities of the Japanese people to nature and the changing seasons. Snow (yuki) was an important symbol as a heavy fall would herald an abundance of water and a good rice harvest.

This traditional representation of snow first emerged during the Muromachi period (1392-1568), before the true structure of snowflakes was identified, and is worked with silver and gold metal threads on a background of heavy gold silk twill using Japanese goldwork techniques.
