Textile fragment with interlocking spirals

Details

  • Catalogue text

    Interlocking, rotating floral design; the focus of the pattern can be shifted, as can the definition of form through colour, i.e. the design can be read as either red on a white background, or white on red.

    The pattern is slightly blurred on the reverse. Possibly 13th century, see Cat. no. 296 [EA1990.305].
