Baby-Carrying Strap with Patches and Four-Petal Lotus Patterns of the Zhuang People
The main pattern of this baby-carrying strap is the four-petal lotus pattern. Each petal is embroidered with different flowers, which are gorgeous and vigorous. Rich blossom pattern is also one of the characteristics of baby-carrying straps of the Zhuang people in Guangxi. It is said that the Goddess of Fertility of Zhuang, Miluojia was born in a flower, thus also known as Flower Goddess. She is able to protect children to grow up healthily. The custom of embroidering all kinds of blossoms on the straps also stands for the embrace of Flower Goddess, which is able to surround the children with a world with birds' twitter and fragrance of flowers.
