This weeks Illustration Friday theme word is Paisley!
Paisley would have to be my all time favourite pattern, love, love love it!!!!!! When I doodle it often comes out as paisley its just so intricate and pretty.
There is an interesting story attached to paisley in the context of Hindu religion it goes;
The Monkey god Hanuman was hungry and looked up into the trees for fruit. He ate one which was a wonderful flavour, much better than all of the others. It was a mango. To make sure that all of his friends could find the same good fruit he went along and squeezed them all into this distinctive shape.
