Suzhou Silk Art Creation Process
Customer Comments and Our Story
This gorgeous golden horse shimmers in pure silk thread. Using 1/16 of a single strand of thread and tight parallel stitches, our silk artists have created an image full of detail and definition. The fully stitched background provides a beautiful textural backdrop to our resolute horse, and the play of sunlight on the colors seems completely natural. In Chinese symbology, horses represent speed, movement and success. The arts and literature of China betray a fascination with horses' speed and free spirit, both of which are crucial to success. The horse is the seventh animal sign on the 12-year Chinese zodiac cycle. According to astrologers, people born in the year of the horse are social, yet independent, active, mobile and extremely quick-witted. Symbolically, horses bring good things on their backs and are a good luck token for a successful outcome. People trying to sell a house will often put a statue or painting of a horse near the front door. A great gift to wish someone success, or to yourself if you are trying to sell your house.
