Art in Embroidery
I'd like to possibly have it cleaned, then mounted under glass.
It was listed as a "geometric tapestry", and the seller thought it might be Peruvian.
I just fell in love with it (it's the most money I've ever spent on an eBay auction, around $133).
The size is roughly 29" by 31".
There's one repair on it
There is also an area that looks like it's not tacked down or is about to fray, and the border is missing on part of the piece.
I don't know what the symbolism of the shapes mean, but I'd like to find out.
I'm also curious about the age of this piece.
Does anyone know if textiles like this should be cleaned or left as is?
How does one find someone who can mount this safely, without damaging the piece?
I consider this a work of art, and I'd like to display it and care for it.
