This fabric represents a scene from the Fantastical Adventures of Alexander the Great: Alexander goes to Heaven in a basket borne by griffins. He has rendered the contraption dirigible by using roasted puppies on sticks to urge the griffins – but they are not meant to eat the bait till the journey is over.
As buyers have variable requirement we prefer to discuss the needed lenght personaly after you will choose the width and make the order. We also try to cut the fabric by whole medallions.
We reconstruct fabrics basing on historical sources.
