Very pleased with Elephant tapestry. The on-line picture is true to actual colour and texture. The back is well finished and provides an opening for rod which makes hanging very easy. Purchased two other tapestries from this supplier and both were also as pictured on-line. Have recommended this supplier to my friends.

Awesome as it hangs on the wall in our family room...

Great tapestry. Colors look great, picture looks better in person than on the website.

The tapestry was beautiful. Color was gorgeous. The fabric was soft. It looks great on my wall. When I look at it, I am reminded of my trip to Venice.

It is stunning hanging behind my bed.

Lovely colours and texture. I secured it to the wall by adding a weighted rod to the bottom of the tapestry.

Description

The Elephant is a European jacquard wall tapestry featuring an exotic Asian elephant covered with rich carpets and ornaments. The original design is from a famous 19th century tapestry on display in the Louvre Museum in Paris. It was woven at a carpet factory in Aubusson established by Alexis Sallandrouze, 1808-67. The design, attributed to Jean-Baptiste-Amédée Couder, 1797-1864, draws on a number of different sources. By introducing these exotic influences, the tapestry contributed to a revival of the decorative arts in France in the 1840's. The luxuriant landscape is framed by pairs of twisted columns. The ornamental border is very rich, composed of a dense, complex tracery recalling the decorative vocabulary of Islamic architecture. Beyond this architectural frame lies a luminous landscape in which an Asian elephant can be seen passing between a palm and a banana tree. The elephant, richly caparisoned from top to toe. The tapestry may have been part of a set representing the continents.
