PIXEL PANCHO brings us an amazing piece here! This 9ft by 6ft rug was painstakingly hand woven over a 6 month period. The subject matter of this rug is truly magnificent, St. George, the military saint.
from our friends at Wikipedia:
Saint George (c. 275/281 – 23 April 303 AD), born in Lydda, Palestine, was a soldier in the Roman army and was later venerated as a Christian martyr. His father was Gerontius, a Christian official in the Roman army. His mother, Polychronia was a local Christian of Palestine. Saint George became an officer in the Roman army in the Guard of Diocletian. In hagiography, Saint George is one of the most venerated saints in the Catholic (Western and Eastern Rites), Anglican, Eastern Orthodox, and the Oriental Orthodox churches. He is immortalized in the tale of Saint George and the Dragon and is one of the Fourteen Holy Helpers. His memorial is celebrated on 23 April, and he is regarded as one of the most prominent military saints.
