This medallion-like design featuring the Dixos print is based on an 18th century embroidery fragment from the Dodecanese island of Astypalaia. In Greek mythology, Astypalaia is one of Poseidon’s lovers who he spirited away in the form of a winged and fish-tailed leopard.
Beyond its beauty, this very fine repeat illustrates the design influence of Venice, who held control of the island for several hundred years.
