Object Description
Multicolored textile with geometric diamond and square design. The diamonds and squares are in pink, burgundy, grey, white, navy, and yellow. There are four main diamonds in the middle of the fabric, which have layers of colors. The outside of these diamonds are surrounded by small squares, which also follow the diamond shape and different layers of colors.
Origin
Wall hangings were a popular form of decoration, thanks to how easy they are to transport (which was much easier than paintings).
