King of Ornaments
This lion-hearted ornament is going to make a fierce addition to your holiday decor, whether running wild on your tree, or adding leonine flair to a bottle of wine. Its gold satin body has a foam filling that gives it a squeezable three-dimensionality. Iridescent sequins and tiny seed beads are added for texture, and the mane is added using cotton embroidery thread. The face and other details are created with zardozi, a traditional Persian embroidery technique where tightly coiled wire is stitched to the fabric. Handmade by a group of artisans in Agra, India, who are part of a fair trade organization.
