This tapestry "Tree of Life Olive" shows the famous life giving tree of life, based on the original of William Morris from 1879. The tree of life is a symbol in many cultures of everlasting life, and of the connection between heaven and earth. The tree's roots reach into the earth, while its branches reach towards the heavens. The tree itself is a source of life producing leaves and flowers, as well as a home for its many birds. The forest ground is equally rich in blooms to complete the mille fleur style of tapestry made popular by Morris. The detailed and beautiful border with its vines, leaves and variety of exquisite flowers in yellows, peaches and blue greens, accompany the work perfectly to give a sense of balance composition. This tapestry "Tree of Life Olive" is backed with lining and a tunnel for ease of hanging. Note: tapestry rods and tassels, where pictured, are not included in the price.
