It is beyond amazing. Considering that it is between 1000 and 2000 years old to start. The fact that the colors are still so vibrant. The fact that the subject matter is abstrated in such a marvelous manner - consider artists like Leger and Paul Klee of the 20's Century and you will see where their references came from. This is the ultimate work of modernism from ancient times. It measures an impressive 40 inches by 26 inches in the museum frame. This textile has appeared in numerous museum shows. Including UCLA, LSU, The Santa Barbara Musuem of Art, and UCSB to name but a few. Most of these works at this level are now owned by prominent museums. This work has been in our family for a very long time. As we are getting older it is time to let some of these wonders go. It is looking for a great home and for someone who will care for it as we have for the next generation. It is housed in a plexi glass museum frame. And the image is mounted on archival burlap. It is being offered for the very first time.
