Seat Cushion Cover (Star with Four Birds)

interlocked tapestry

57 x 56 cm

A dramatic large star fills the centre, but in the corners are large red birds, a most unusual feature with this composition. Large half-diamond at the sides complete the design and give the impression of continuity on all sides.
