Description
An exceptional quality 19thc pair of beautifully embroidered oval scenes, one being the famous 'Agnus Dei' Lamb of God, the other depicting Bleeding & Babies Feeding Pelican Christ Symbol. This rare and meaningful symbol in Christianity was all handcrafted in the mid-20th century. The perfectly embroidered pelican and babies are made of top-quality silk, gold and copper thread. In medieval Europe, the pelican was thought to be particularly attentive to her young. Some legends claimed that when food became scarce a mother pelican would bite at her own breast until she drew blood. The mother will offer up her own blood to feed her babies rather than see them starve. As a result, the pelican became a symbol of the Passion of Jesus and of the Eucharist since about the 12th century. Superb quality embroidery and rare to find a pair. Gold bullion threaded decoration of high quality, these are a fabulous find and of a substantial size with each measuring 44cm x 35cm. In overall fabulous condition with the odd broken thread, super rare and highly decorative.
