Vintage Red Handmade Indian Toran Door Valance
Torans are handmade in India and are hung over doorways and windows as an auspicious accessory to act as a barrier to protect your home from negativity of the outside world.
This one is hand embroidered and over-dyed in red. The embroidery includes two large peacocks among the many creatures and the word, "Welcome" in English on each side. It also has six swastikas, which is an ancient Hindu symbol for luck. Some pompoms are missing from the bottom right corner, otherwise excellent condition.
