Overview

This exquisite piece of framed embroidery artwork combines hand satin stitching and machine embroidery techniques to depict a cicada full of life's experiences on red jacquard fabric. The head is intricately embroidered with varying shades of red silk thread to create the cicada's prominent, bright eyes, making them appear vivid and lifelike. The upper body is crafted using turquoise and blue silk threads, with patterns on the chest incorporating designs from ancient Chinese bronze ware, reflecting the essence of traditional Chinese culture and philosophy. The lower body is embroidered with white silk threads to depict the cicada's large wings, with meticulous lines that highlight the transparency of the wings. The entire embroidery textile artwork is outlined with gold silk threads, and the cicada's antennae are filled with different shades of gold, enhancing their three-dimensional effect. Inspired by insects, this wall art is suitable for collectors and artists interested in insect embroidery or wall decoration art.

Zen Symbolism

The cicada’s pronunciation is phonetically similar to "Zen" in Chinese, symbolizing a profound life philosophy. This work conveys the concepts of Zen meditation and self-cultivation, making it not only an art piece but also a philosophical symbol

Cultural Connotation of Bronze

The upper half of the cicada is primarily in shades of turquoise and blue, evoking ancient bronze culture. Embroidered on the gold totem on the blue chest of the cicada is a motif called "taotie," a beastly face from Chinese mythology often found in the decorative patterns of bronze artifacts. It typically features a fierce visage, often depicted with a body of a sheep, human face, eyes under the armpits, tiger teeth, and human hands. Additionally, Taotie is commonly believed to be the fifth son of the dragon, in ancient carvings, it is used to symbolize greed and desire, serving as a warning to steer clear of such desires.
