This amazing Optical weaving from the 1920s was probably woven on a loom attached to a tree outdoors.  It's fascinating to wonder how the vision for this piece was given to the weaver. Was it in a dream?  Was it something she saw in the world around her that she wanted to incorporate into this piece?  Had she seen another weaving and wanted to bring elements from it into a piece of her own?  We will never know.  But we do know that this piece is nearly 5 feet wide, is 10 feet long and is a treasure!

The detail in this piece is wonderful. Pick a white line and you can follow it through the design. Pick a brown line and do the same. Tiny bouquets of delicate orange and black berries adorn this piece. And the lovely red and white border of which, at first glance you can imagine the tails of kites soaring in the wind. But of course there is more to it than that. This piece was woven in the 1920s and is just as gorgeous today as it was when first brought to life.
