Shu embroidery is typically done on the soft satin fabric produced in Sichuan province. A Shu embroidered piece may include hundreds of thousands of stitches in a single figure or animal, and may take many days or even weeks to complete. One of the most popular subjects for Shu embroiderers is the panda bear, but scenes of nature of any kind are also common.[Photo/Zou Hong/ asianewsphoto.com]
