Filled with the ecstasy of love, this "Klimt's Kiss" tapestry shows the kiss of the red haired woman by Austrian artist of the Viennese Secession Movement, Gustav Klimt (1862 - 1918). The theme of this work is often called his Erotic-Symbolist theme as portrayed in Water Serpents and The Kiss, originally created in 1908. In this piece, the woman is embraced by the man, a contrast to his other works where the woman plays a dominant role. Also, the ecstasy of this embrace is a breakthrough in the puritanical times of early 20th century upper class Vienna. Here he provides a passionate scene, cleverly censored by a colorful aura which many people mistaken as a robe around the couple as they embrace. The background of gold also provides this scene with a richness and intensity. This modern art tapestry "Klimt's Kiss" is backed with a lining and has a tunnel for easy hanging. Note: tapestry rod and tassels, where pictured, are purchased separately.
