Crystal Springs School for Girls, Hillsborough, California, 1973
This panel was woven for a narrow wall space. The episode seems to represent a surprise reunion between the two lovers. In a variant group in the lower right corner of the border a putto wreathed with leaves sits astride a goat, a symbol of sexual passion. From Anna Gray Bennett, "Five Centuries of Tapestry: The Fine Arts Museums of San Francisco" (San Francisco: Chronicle Books; The Fine Arts Museums of San Francisco, 1976; repr. 1992): 236.
