Veil - Artifacts

Embroidery in cross-stitch, back-stitch, and stem stitch in magenta, purple, brown, and white to form snowflake, tree-like, and outline motifs on a black plain-weave background. A central square motif is surrounded by horizontal rows of embroidery. Two extra vertical rows border the sides. The top and bottom edges have two cords sewn to them, one brown and one beige. Two tassels in red and magenta silk are joined at their tops by a thread that passes through the lower left corner of the veil. Each tassel has three beads decorating its top in this color order: white, black, white. See page 32 of _Pien Fa Hang Collection_ catalog.
