TIDS 'n BITS:
The Chasse en Inde design:
Chasse en Inde translates to Hunting in India and was created by Michel Duchene.
"Designed in 1985 for the Year of India, Chasse en Inde is inspired by a silk bed
throw embroidered with gold thread from Benares. It was displayed in the dining
room of the Indian Ambassador to France as a decorative wall hanging. The refined, luxuriant design is reminiscent of an illumination. Hunting scenes are repeated to infinity on a series of bands, calling to mind block-print Indian textiles."
