Banjaluka Felt Prayer Hanging
The felt prayer hanging depicted with appliqued felt wool flowers and baskets secured with blanket stitch and embellished with couched silk details. The central motif is a vase of flowers under a mihrab set against a red velvet ground surrounded by a border with vases and flowers framed by stylised scrollwork. A very similar Banjaluka prayer hanging is in The Philadelphia Museum of Art, USA. Click here for a link to The Philadelphia textile webpage.
