This stunning Georgian silk on silk embroidery shows Jesus with two magnificent angels in a landscape. This embroidery came from rare local textile estate collection. The angels dresses are embroidered in shimmering silver and gold while Jesus is wearing an amazing blue cherry red, gold and silver robe. One of the angels is holding out a golden chalice for Jesus while the other angels is holding Jesus in her arms. The background, faces, hair, hands, and legs are all exquisitely hand-painted and are works of art. The sensitivity of their facial expressions is outstanding. So delicate and beautiful! There is also a small cherubs head and wings floating on the left of the picture and the shape of the painted background below him looks as if it was meant to be his dress. There are golden embroidered trees in the background as well as dappled silk bushes. There are also some embroidered small green plants in the lower part of the embroidery. The overall condition is amazing for the over 200 years old age of this rare Georgian embroidery . There is no damage or loss to the embroidery just a little separation to the silk in two places due to its great age. The frame is old but not as old as the embroidery. This would be lovely gift for Christmas. Unique, exquisite, just beautiful! Just amazing!
