Mid 20th Century Paintings & Decorative Arts Gallery Level 2, NGV International
The small drawstring bag is entirely covered in small glass beads. There is no distinguishing feature to determine the front from the back of the bag, therefore, the design features several motifs scattered between the front and back. These include five prominent butterflies, a dragonfly and a leaf. These appear on a background of several different shades of blue, of mint green and of white. These beads are configured in colour groups, and together resemble a sky.
