The design started with the idea of Indian temple structures. We have so many different structures pertaining to certain regions. There was no specific temple design that inspired this piece. My husband says this looks like a crown! to give him credit some deities do have crown like this.
It started with applique and double herringbone stitches.

Blue wooden beads are stitched on to the paisley. These blue beads do not match the blue colour scheme, still I used them.
