Modi gifts hand-woven silk portrait to Xi

  MAMALLAPURAM,  OCTOBER 12TH

Chinese President Xi Jinping was gifted a hand-woven portrait of his by Prime Minister Narendra Modi on the final day of the Mamallapuram Informal Summit.

 

The portrait was painstakingly created by the master weavers of Sri Ramalinga Sowdambigai Handloom Weavers Co-operative Society in Sirumugaipudur in Coimbatore District.

The President's face was intricately woven in gold on a red background with floral patterns on both sides of the portrait to enhance its beauty and elegance.

The personal thought put into the gift was reflected through the usage of the red colour which symbolises luck, joy and happiness in Chinese culture and is also the main colour of the Chinese state flag and the ruling party.
