Large silk shawl "Banyan Tree" handpainted by Jane Hinde

Large silk shawl - Banyan Tree Patterns. This design is inspired by my photos of Banyan Trees on Lord Howe Island. These huge trees can spread over huge areas and drop roots down like large limbs walking across the landscape. Outlines are drawn on with gutta and it is then hand painted with silk dyes. Steaming and removing the gutta leaves a washable, smooth surface.
Size: approx. 112 x 112 cm
Care: Hand wash in warm water and iron whilst damp.
