This incredibly large scale and stunning tapestry is a brilliant display of Lichtenstein's visually iconic style. Modern Masters Tapestries has celebrated his original drawing (of the same title) by creating a hand-woven 100% wool tapestry under his direction. This 12 ft. by 9 ft. piece transforms this stunning display of primary color and geometric pattern into a sculptural and transcendent art piece; the abstraction of line and space gives way to a landscape that can is hinted at by the wavy blue areas in the lower left and even the blades of "grass" in the upper left. It has undertones of American Indian sensibilities and a distinctly southwestern American feel; the black and white zig-zag pattern coupled with four feathers in the upper right make way for a whimsical and deeply layered composition that is able to brighten any art collection.
