Chinese Baby Carrier with Straps

For a Chinese Minority mother carrying a baby on her back, this hand-embellished piece reveals her devotion and needlework skills to the village, as well as holding the baby snug and close.  This piece still retains the straps that were used to wrap around the mother, as well as the colorful central motif.  Breathtakingly exquisite in its detail, in a bright, springy palette.
