This Love and the Maiden tapestry is based on the work of Pre-Raphaelite artist John Roddam Spencer - Stanhope. Here we see the maiden and Cupid offering a bunch of peach roses on his right hand and holding his bow and arrow on the left. She is in a lush garden of trees with courtiers in the background. It is considered a masterpiece work of Stanhope from 1877 and is thought to represent a virgin's first encounter with love and sensuality. Cupids wings are a glorious peach orange and pink. The works of the Yorkshire, England artist of his times has been described as Aestheticism and British Symbolism. His works often exude romanticism and uses characters from mythology or folklore, and has been called the second wave of Pre-Raphaelite art. The Love and the Maiden tapestry is backed with a lining and a tunnel for easy hanging. Note: tapestry rods and tassels, where pictured, are not included in the price.
