Paradise Garden -1 Fatima Zahra Hassan

Yuan Dynasty. Brocade with Lotus Flowers. Tabby, brocaded; silk and gold thread. 58.4 cm x 67 cm. Lotus bulbs are seen in staggered horizontal rows against a brick red ground. The bottom of each bulb has a lotus flower and two stems that curve around the flower and then join to form a single stem supporting another lotus flower. Leaves and a lotus flower grow from each of the lateral stems. Both selvages are preserved, intersecting the design along the warp axis. The Cleveland Museum of Art.
