The "Family" pillow cover is inspired by the works of Pablo Picasso, one of the most famous and influential artists of the modern era. It depicts a family of four cats against a backdrop of shimmering purple and a crescent moon. It is a celebration of all that a family stands for in the sense that even though the four cats in the design look entirely different from each other, they are looking in the same direction with a similar sense of wonder in their eyes.
Picasso (along with Georges Braque) developed a unique style known as analytic and synthetic cubism. His works convey a unique sense of depth and motion - a style that brought his work on the world's wall of artistic fame. Unique cubism inspired motifs along with a vibrant color palette add a splash of color to your living space. Fine quality silk threads make it soft to the touch and the raised swirl texture of the embroidery adds an interesting dimension.
Use it to breathe life and artistic energy into any room. It is perfect for a living space couch, home office sofa or that special chair you sink into with your hot cuppa after a long day's work.
It would make an ideal gift for family and friends who appreciate art and beauty.

I found these beautiful black and white watercolor glass pendants of Ganesha and just had to use them in the form of a Rakhi. I used Irish linen jewelry cords in shades of purple/lavender to bring out the purple in the painting.
Although the color black is a less popular choice of color in Hindu mythology, according to color psychology, it has immense spiritual significance. It represents power, mystery, strength, authority, elegance and sophistication. Purple combines the calm stability of blue and the fierce energy of red and is often associated with royalty, nobility, luxury, power, and ambition.
The presence of Lord Ganesha, the God of success and destroyer of evil and obstacles along with the anchor symbol representing stability and strength make this Rakhi not just a piece of art but also an ideal Rakhi signifying success and achievement.
To convert it into a trinket, simply unknot the threads and slide out the central charm. Hook the "Ganesha" charm to the carabiner clip provided alongside through the clasp. It can be used to accessorize a gym bag, car, home or workspace. The purple threads can be used to wrap gifts, tie flowers, hang tree ornaments (and other creative uses), the paper packaging can be recycled and the organza string bag can be reused as a gift bag or as storage for accessories.
Ships free within USA in a drool-worthy gift packaging. (Select "Free Rakhi Shipping" option on the shipping method menu.)
