Miao festival collar cushion

This cushion is made from a large Miao festival cape collar. The needle work is extraordinary and would have taken its creator up to a year to do. It's made up of applique and embroidery on a tiny scale. You need to spend a bit of time just looking at it to appreciate the skill in making it. The pattern depicts a map of the ancient 5000 year old capital of the Miao ancestors, Chisou. I have backed the cushion with a vintage indigo minority handwoven textile which is also quite special.  The cushion has a zip fastener and feather pad.
