Like its companion piece, "Ancient Ruins II" tapestry shows a scene of ruins in a natural landscape and river, the work of artist Nigel Pierce. Full of masterful use of light and color, this piece has the hallmarks of the work of Pierce. The semi impressionistic yet anchored in the style of classicism, this piece has a unique evocativeness. The glow of light from the sky lights the scene beautifully in the clouds as well as the trees in this piece. The origins and story behind the ruins is left unexplained and is up to our imaginations to fill in the blanks. This landscape tapestry "Ancient Ruins II" is backed with a lining and has a tunnel for easy hanging. Note: tapestry rods and tassels, where pictured, are not included in the price.
