Lion (The Forest)

Detailed Image
Lion (The Forest) 
Part of the larger work known as “The Forest”, the subject of “Lion” in this lion tapestry is shown flanked by a fox and a hare. While the larger piece was commissioned by Aleco Ionides and designed by William Morris (1834-1896), “Lion” was the work of Henry Dearle (1860-1932), a colleague of Morris and Burne-Jones. As with many of their tapestries of the period, the scene is embellished with a background rich in foliage. In this case, it’s acanthus leaves, a signature of Dearle’s work. The original hangs in the Victoria & Albert Museum in London. As a discerning collector, you’ll appreciate its amazing detail, striking composition and fine weave. This tapestry, based on the famous work by William Morris, is lined and has a tunnel for easy hanging. Note: Tapestry rod and tassels, where pictured, are not included in the price.

Ordered a tapestry to very short timescales just before Christmas... not expecting to receive before the New Year. Extremely surprised when it arrived just before Christmas during all the really snowy weather

...& even more surprised at the high quality of the tapestry. I am now about to place an order for another tapestry for my daughter's 18th birthday.

Highly recommended!

David, England
