A Huge Collection of Embroidered silk  Spheres by  92-year-old grandmother in Japan.

These intricate and extraordinarily beautiful embroidered silk balls are a form of Japanese folk art called Temari, which means “hand ball” in Japanese. These particular temari are even more impressive because they were handmade by a 92-year-old grandmother in Japan. NanaAkua’s flickr
