Birds are a common motif in folk embroidery across many cultures and, because of their association with gardens, symbolize paradise. This striking pair of confronted birds comes from Macedonian folk embroidery and is worked in a traditional palette of terra cotta red, deep blue, and gold. Beautiful as a framed piece, table mat, pillow cover, or wallhanging.
