This tapestry 'Double Opium Turquoise' features the double poppy, a species of opium poppy with multi lobed petals in its flower and renowned for its beauty. The tapestry is woven with turquoise boucle on a creamy boucle background. The opium flower has been known throughout history as a flower of culinary delights with the use of poppy seeds in foods as well as the use of its opiods. For example, the composer Hector Berlioz was said to have used the plant to evoke hallucinations in the composition of his Symphonie Fantastique. Today, the plant is grown in many gardens purely for the visual bloom of its flowers. Contemporary in design, yet simple in its appeal and beauty, this piece would suit any room or home requiring a contemporary botanical touch. This tapestry is backed with a lining and has a tunnel for easy hanging. Tapestry rod pictured is not included.
