Description:

Tulips woven with gold & silver. Metallic oil & chalk. © Su Schaefer 2012.

A simplified simulation of a woven textile from the Ottoman court studios (remnant in the Davidson Museum, Denmark). See more versions of 'Tulips' by Su_G.

Related designs are 'Aged tulips with gold and silver' - darker blue tulips on a worn and 'aged' dark red ground, and 'Blue tulip tapestry' - bright and pale blue tulips woven with gold on a blue ground with tiny white dots.

Apparently, at certain times, the Sultans in the Ottoman empire banned the manufacture of textiles like this, as they used so much gold and silver thread that they drained the empire's precious metal reserves.

See other costuming / SCA designs by Su_G.

Metallic oil and chalk, basic repeat.
