In this modern coat of arms tapestry "Crest On Black I" we see two hounds in silver on a heraldic crest that features a standing lion which represents courage and strength. Royal crests and family crests have been used for centuries by families and royalty to represent their own name, but also to represent the virtues that they believed in. This contemporary work which takes these themes and virtues to create a work that has a modern tension. The color palette is cohesive and evocative at the same time, with the greens highlighting the curves of the acanthus leaves complementing the crimsons and the golds of the piece very well. This royal crest tapestry "Crest On Black I" is backed with a lining and has a tunnel for ease of hanging.
