French Knots on Tapestry Mandala Framed Print (9″ x 11″)


Only 1 left in stock


This nature mandala began as a photo of Oriental knotweed growing in one of the wild places in my yard on Pleasant Hill near Morgantown, West Virginia.  Why do I have wild places on my property?  It’s not all for the habitat value!  When I moved into my house in 1998, the yard, including a very steep and scary slope, were all beautifully manicured green lawn. I took my first trip down the slope as the new homeowner and flipped my mower, so the manicured lawn was quickly a thing of the past.

The slope is now covered with a dense forsythia thicket and I’ve allowed the lower yard to wild, making it a magical space where new wildflowers, like the knotweed in this mandala, appear quite unexpectedly. French Knots on Tapestry captures some of the magic of the place, as it brings to mind French knots carefully embroidered in the shape of a flower against a tapestry of marbled color.

Enjoy this piece as a high-quality giclee print on Hahnemuhle photo rag paper, beautifully prepared in a slightly ornate bronzed wood frame with acid-free cream mat and UV acrylic glazing.  The finished size is 9″ x 11″, including the frame, perfect for filling an intimate wall space or for displaying in a table-top stand.  A copy of the original photo and the story of the piece are included on the back.
