Sales of traditional gold embroidery paintings have revived and secured a strong market in the domestic souvenir market, according to a Myanmar traditional souvenir shop in Yangon Region.
The owner of the Myanma Ahla Souvenirs shop, U Maung Maung Aye, said that the gold embroidery paintings are attractive to international tourists with their creative fine arts. Thus, foreign tourists choose to buy the gold embroidery paintings. In addition, local companies, hotels, and residential houses buy them. Therefore, the gold embroidery painting market is getting more robust.
Items of higher sales turnover predominantly showcases Myanmar traditions, including the Mandalay Palace wall, Yadana horse, white elephant, palace, scenery, monasteries, and lake with lotuses. What is more, the report also states that embassies and international organizations order the designs with relevant countries’ emblems and organizations’ logos.
Myanmar traditional gold embroideries are created on the velvet sheet with embossed art, gold threads, pearl beads and sequins, crystal stones or gem stones, painting the scenes involved in the life of Buddha, Myanmar traditional festivals, royal events, battlegrounds, and animals that are valued by Myanmar, such as elephants, peacocks, and animals of seven days.
Only one person skilled in the art of gold embroidery is not enough to create a painting. It requires the collaboration of many skilled gold embroidery crafters at every step. Furthermore, they need to have an understanding of art, painting, and tailoring. Typically, it takes a minimum of a week to complete a gold embroidery painting. — ASH/ TMT
