This 4 x 6 meter hand-stitched and embroidered three-dimensional textile art wallpiece was created by Beyond Living, based on a sketch of Krachow Sita (Aristolochia indica) by illustrator Pomm Jitpratuk.
All the cotton and silk fabric used in this artwork is sourced from Her Majesty the Queen’s SUPPORT Foundation (The Foundation for the Promotion of Supplementary Occupations and Related Techniques). The Krachow Sita is a flowering creeper vine found attached to tree trunks in the forests of Thailand and is also a popular ornamental plant. The nuance of femininity is evocative of Sita, the avatar of Lakshmi and the embodiment of perfect womanhood in the Ramayana epic; she is the lover and soulmate of the epic’s hero Rama, incarnation of Vishnu.
