Embroidered Thai silk kept in a box labeled Tran Vai Lua. The blue silk is taped to and framed by white matting paper. The textile measures 14 1/4 inches in length by 14 3/8 inches in width. The image depicted is of a green and white figure swimming underwater with a mermaid. The mermaid has a red tail, red and purple fins, and has turned her head to face the figure behind her. The figure is holding onto the mermiad, one hand on her shoulder and one hand on her stomach. There are six fish swimming around them, four red with green fins and two green with red fins. In the bottom left corner is a red and green rock and seaweed.
