Banjaluka Felt Prayer Hanging
This felt prayer hanging is decorated 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.
