Exhibition History:

DeYoung , 1979 during King Tutankhamun

A lozenge-shaped tapestry unit framed by four semi circular units, each encloses a branch with three leaves. The lozenge is filled with meander lines and framed by vine leaves. Each of these details occurs in several monochrome examples of tapestries found in Egypt. The composition as whole, however, is unusual. Probably from a garment.
