Celtic Peacocks Tapestry
This large tapestry from the Animal Fayre Collection, was inspired by the entwined peacocks, which are found throughout the Book of Kells. There are two central panels which each have two peacocks twisted about each other. There is a large border framing these panels, with a further twelve coloured peacocks decorating it.
The design is sewn dramatically in rich colours on a dark background and would present an absorbing project to the needle-worker who likes a challenge.
The Book of Kells was written around 800AD and is one of the worlds most beautifully illuminated manuscripts. It is now in Oxford University Library.
Great as a wall hanging or even framed.
