BYZANTINE SQUARE SCARF

The Byzantine square scarf is a print displaying all the magic and wonder of ancient Byzantine empire and enchanting Islamic Art; The Basilica Cistern - the under ground cathedral where flowing water and carpe reside, mixed with our photography at the beautiful 'La Grande Mosquée' in central Paris. Further surreal elements take the print to a whole new dimension, including studies of the designers hands.

The 'Byzantine', strange fruit Collection is inspired by the Byzantine Empire, the opulence, excesses, arts and lavish feasts, their admiration of nature's bounty, tempered by suspicion.

'In Byzantine the drapes remained closed; only with occasional chinks opening here and there to show views of observed nature. This was not because the Byzantines were oblivious to the charms of nature, far from it - but their delight was mingled in distrust.' (Nectar & illusion, Henry Miguire).
