Indian Torans above the Bed

A beautiful hand made Indian Toran over the window in this Thai home

Indian Toran over a Cot in babies Nursery
Indian Toran above the bed in Echo Park
These Toran from India are great arent they? Each one is unique as they are hand-stitched. The ones I have seen usually feature Ganesh (mover of obstacles) at the center and then beautiful embroidered birds, animals and people.

Although they are tradionally door hangings they also look great above the bed or window....

I love the image of the toran above the mattress in the Echo Park bedroom (bottom photo). The lighting is perfect. What a beautiful space.
