Repeating scene of two figures in Pesian-style dress. One is bound and led on a rope by the other who wears a scimitar and carries an axe over his shoulder. A tree motif separates each repeating. Background of simple repeating blossoms and leaves. Red, white black and green silk, plus silver colored wrapped (metallic?) yarns. Good condition. See: 51.508. B is pieced; tape borders. A is mounted on blue cotton.
