Brocade with Mythical Beasts, Green

Reference : 103-03-0006
Old reference : 10-0030

Our textile reconstruction of an Italian silk woven in Lucca in 2nd half of 14th century.

Here we see lotus flowers combined with gothic palmette leaves, deers or qilins and flying dogs. By the later Middle Ages Asian silks were abundant in Europe. Their patterns were flowing and often asymmetrical in contrast to European symmetrical designs of roundels and paired animals. This brocade shows a combination of both, which started to be popular at this time in Italy.

The original was found in Gdansk and belongs nowadays to Victoria and Albert Museum.
