Artist's Description

This marvellous piece of embroidery was from Kalocsa, in Hungary and was for sale at 27000 Florints (about $A130). Hungary’s tradition of embroidery dates back to the Middle Ages. Hungarian daughters learned to embroider at a very young age, and a family’s wealth was often measured or determined by the number of embroidered cloths they had. Bold colors, floral patterns, and rich textures characterize embroidery from Hungary. Traditional designs that have been passed down from generation to generation identify national and regional heritage.
