Dog (A Mon Suel Desir) - (9 left)
The lovely intricate background of many 15th century Flemish tapestries, filled with richly interwoven flowers is known as Mille Fleurs - “A thousand flowers”. A design based on this pattern forms the backing for an elegant dog - a hunting dog taken from the Lady and the Unicorn tapestry in Musée de Cluny, Paris. The phrase in its formal banner reads ‘à mon seul desir’ which can be translated as ‘for my only love’. This decorative wall hanging would make an excellent present for the owner of any dog, perhaps especially a greyhound or whippet...and also for lovers everywhere.
Please note this is not part of the Flower Garden Frieze range and so will not fit with the designs in that range.
