Humeral Veil

Humeral Veil

400.00

This image is of a white silk humeral veil found in the museum’s collection. It is richly embroidered in gold and coloured silk thread. In the centre is a radiating composition containing Christ’s trigram and the three nails, surmounted by a cross. Richly embroidered gold and silk plant motifs rise from the four corners. Other flowers of different sizes mark a sparse composition, probably Mughal-influenced, on the field, which is edged by a gold band stimulating the usual narrow border.
