Thread Art

There's a display of Hapsburg lace bookmarks.
It's a special form of embroidery art.

If you put "Hapsburg bookmark" on google, you'll be surprise how many beautiful images you'll find.


With thread, there is another art form: Temari Balls.

According to Wikipedia, "Temari balls are a  folk art form originated in China and was introduced to Japan around the 7th century A.D. "Temari" means "hand ball" in Japanese. Balls made from embroidery may be used in handball games."

The display of the Temari Balls at the Morgan Hill Community and Cultural Center is very nice.

It's doubtful anyone would use these as handballs for the game, they are really pieces of art.
