This tree of life tapestry "The Knight with the Tree of Life" is from the artwork of Gustav Klimt (1862 - 1918). Klimt was an artist who profoundly influenced the art movements which followed him including the Modernism and the Art Deco movements. Here we see a knight emerging from a tent of maidens, as he ventures into the landscape where the Tree of Life resides. The tree of life is an elusive and iconic figure which represent immortality of life, and the connection that the tree represents between earth and the heavens as its roots reach into the earth while its branches reaches up towards the heavens. Klimt's works contain his iconic twirling branches of his tree with the superimposed flowers and patterns on his natural subjects. This tapestry "The Knight with the Tree of Life" is lined, and has a tunnel for easy hanging. Note: tapestry rod and tassels, where pictured, are purchased separately.
