The silhouette is rudimentary, but apt. From the sucked-in cheeks and the long neck, to the hump and the short, thick tail, each of these aspects are set apart by a distinctive embroidered patch. In fact, the neck is made from two different, albeit identical, patches. Zoom in on the borders to take in the beauty of the handiwork that has gone into the high-precision finish of the composition. The patches themselves come with bits of monotone or complementary-coloured embroidery of local floral observations.
The background makes a statement of the desert dusk. The colour palette of the patches therein comprises of dark blues and purples and blacks, each embroidered with a mandatory element of white. The subject is seemingly trudging along the desert in the middle of the night, probably having strayed from its master’s stock in bovine innocence.
