Suzhou Silk Art Creation Process
Customer Comments and Our Story
These two Bengal Tigers have an enormous amount of depth, resolution and expression. The expert craftsmanship of our silk artists is evident, using only 1/16 of a single strand of silk thread and building color and texture with more than 10 layers of individual stitches to create a masterpiece. Every detail of the tiger shows clearly with fine resolution, the sharp eyes are focused and expressive. The fine stitches combined with the color layering create fur that actually looks soft. And, with the fully stitched background this tiger has a realistic, three-dimensional effect, making the tiger vivid and compelling. Tigers are among the most recognizable and popular of the world's charismatic megafauna. Cross-culturally, tigers are featured prominently in ancient mythology and folklore, in Chinese legends, five tigers maintain the balance of cosmic forces and prevent chaos, the yellow tiger, the Bengal, is the ruler of the other tigers and represents the sun. The tiger is also the third animal symbol in the Chinese Zodiac's 12 year cycle and is a strong representation of Yang energy in Feng Shui.
