Description
Striking silk scarf based on a 5th-century Byzantine mosaic of a leopard, which is preserved at the Beiteddine Palace in Lebanon. The mosaic leopard is from an important Byzantine collection, mostly from discoveries in the coastal town of Jiyyeh (ancient Porphyrion), modern-day Lebanon. The mosaics date from the 5th–6th centuries and are often geometric, but there are also interesting depictions of animals and religious figures. Printed silk chiffon, with a beautiful lustre and elegant drape, with finely hand-rolled edges adding a refined touch.

Please note, due to the nature of the printing process, the design on the reverse of this scarf will be paler in colour than the front.

Made exclusively for Museum Selection.
