For thousands of years, the ethnic minorities living in the subtropical mountainous areas of southwestern China have created extraordinary handcrafted textiles depicting the native flora and fauna in wonderfully expressive patterns. Deftly embroidered and appliquéd, this late 20th-century textile repeats a stylized tile motif composed of flower shapes, birds, butterflies, and cats. We love the whimsical imagery and the strong graphic appeal of its carefully considered composition.
