Since the dawn of artistic expression, lions have played a prominent role in visual depictions and in defining humanity’s relationship with the natural and spiritual world. Insula art was no different. The lion frequently represented an omnipotent being and in this design, with a many colored breath that can breath life into limbs. Against a backdrop of Mourne Blue, reminiscent of the remarkable beauty of these northern mountains, Gold Silk adds a lustrous and soft texture to an abstracted form of this mighty being. Shown in an 8’ x 8′ square, custom sizes and colors are available upon request. Made to order of traditionally spun pure Irish wool in rural Ireland and tufted by hand.
