Not On View
Woven with dull pink silk and gilded gold beater’s skin. The design of pairs of gazelles and parrots affronted and large cone-like forms, is brought out by the contrast of weaves. The heads and claws and circles on the wings of the parrots are of gold, as are also the heads and hoofs of the gazelles, and a few leaves. Pieced.
