Scarf, entitled Butterfly and Lilies, by Karen Alliston
Add to album

This silk-screen printed scarf entitled 'Butterfly and Lilies' was made by the artist Karen Alliston in 1980.

The scarf has a rhythmic, non-naturalistic design of a butterfly with its head hidden in lilies. It uses three colours on a white background.

During the 1980s the Scottish Development Agency purchased a number of hand-crafted items for its Scottish Crafts Collection. The aim of the collection was to inform the public of craft production in Scotland through touring exhibitions and education programmes. When the Scottish Craft Council was wound up, the collection was transferred to the National Museums of Scotland.
