Santa Maria Della Salute Venetian Tapestry
This beautiful hand woven tapestry from Burano, Italy (Venice) is a wonderful depiction of ancient Venice through the art of tapestry making. This piece was hand selected by us from the lace maker in Burano, Italy. Burano, a small island off of Venice, Italy, is world famous for its art of lace making and tapestry making. The tapestry is 100% handmade in Burano by expert lace makers and not a “Burano or Venetian Styled” tapestry. This piece is authentic Burano and Venetian art.
A wonderfully detailed scene of gondolas and merchant ships in historic everyday life on the canal in front of Santa Maria Della Salute Church. The tapestry is handmade using silk thread and precision detail is given to the artistry of weaving. It is difficult to get a precise idea of the beauty of this tapestry through photos; its true beauty is seen and appreciated in real life.
Liberal use of earthen and rustic colors such as sage, wheat, shades of olive and fire brick reds, to name a few, give this tapestry a classic and look and feel; making it a wonderful complement and accent to any worldly home or office.
The backing has a stitched tunnel for easy wall hanging. This piece should only be dry cleaned sparingly. While the tapestry will last a lifetime if treated properly; it is also a delicate piece and should be handled accordingly.
The tapestry measures 29” x 39”
Hanging rod and tassels not included.
