Textile fragment with quatrefoils and groups of four arrows

Details

  • Catalogue text

    Two types of symmetric flowers; one a quatrefoil with a square at the centre and petals made up from lotus leaf shapes, the other four arrows facing each other. The resist defines the pattern, the background is blue.

    The block probably centres on the quatrefoil and has an arrow in each corner, which combine to create the second flower. In this case, the block would have been square and measured 5.5 cm. x 5.5 cm. Remnants of very thick thread.
