9780684139883: Embroidery Designs from Pre-Columbian Art

This book offers a wide variety of embroidery designs in both crewel and needlepoint techniques which can be used as all-over patterns, borders, and decorative spots on such things as lampshades, cushions, curtains, table linen, shirts, smocks, skirts, aprons, bags and so on. These designs have been adapted from Aztec, Mayan and Inca pottery, baskets and textiles. Some are abstract, others show strange birds, animals, serpents and fish. They are exotic, exciting, even grotesque, and should be worked in bold colors. Anyone who is looking for motifs in a different idiom will find a wealth of ideas in this primitive art.
