Unknown artist: Finnish Tapestry

The Work of Art

Although the artist and creator is unknown, the  textile wall-hanging  is a good example of a  filomena linen Takana. Similar examples depict images and symbols  such as Maltese crosses, sun bursts, trophies  in dark brown on an orange background or as in this example vice-versa. The work is  very much decorative and of its time (when the combination of  browns and oranges where considered  very fashionable).
