Beautiful Silk Art for large Bedroom Walls

In tropical climates you need to build large open spaces in order to be able to abandon the airconditioning. And if you want to decorate large empty walls - who would not - you will need large art pieces (according to one of the interior design rules: proportion and scale).

Just like this one: a silk art quilt with a theme that depicts some of the most beautiful mystic figures of southeast Asian epics: Apsaras.

I think you would agree that this wall looks a bit too blank and empty and without any decor one could feel a bit lost.

The art quilt has been entirely handstitched. The motif shows 3 apsaras placed in a fantasy forest. It is an hommage to Angkor Wat in Cambodia and its ancient art with hundreds of apsara sculptures, which have been carved into the stone walls of the temples. Ancient cultures, where silks were common in clothing and the interior of houses...
