Jain Sequin Wall Hanging
Wall hangings were a sacred part of Jain temple worship and decor. They often contain auspicious symbols - such as Sunya, the sun god, seen depicted as a face in the top center. Below him is an abstract cypress tree, and surrounding are swirls, flowers, vessels, and birds. The center field is sequins and assorted floral buttons on a burnt orange ground, surrounded by a navy blue ground with the same detailing.
