Pictorial - Great Star : Historic : GHT 2161

This is a special and very unusual treat.  Typically when a weaver adds stars to a piece they use valero (8-pointed) stars.  This weaver chose to use 5-pointed stars woven of beautifully variegated brown wool, and with a central pentagon shape of aniline red - lined with brown in the top star and with black in the bottom star.  Belted diamonds circle the top star while two vessels are balanced on the arms of the bottom star. The artist included well positioned "lazy" or sectional lines throughout the piece to add a level of dimensional beauty

A most unusual and well done piece.
