We are looking at the Embroidered-Patch Baby-Carrying Strap with Design of Goddess of Butterfly of the Miao people in Guizhou. The various shapes of patches are cut out of cloth and jointed to the bottom cloth, which are equipped with different embroidery techniques for creating rich, colorful patterns.

Who is the Goddess of Butterfly? She is the common ancestor of the Miao people eulogized in ancient Miao poems and songs. The butterfly patterns embroidered at the back reflect the mother's praying toward the Goddess for blessing her child. The bottom cloth of the strap is made of the most characteristic bright cloth of Miao, which is of great ethnic features.
