Gustav_Klimt_Blue_Flower_Wool_Abstract-Rug. This glorious modern abstract Rug/tapestry is hand embroidered using Chain stitch needlepoint embroidery and design inspired by the works of modern artist, Gustav Klimt. This motif brings to mind not only Klimt’s famous “Tree of Life” painting, but also Kandinsky’s colorful concentric circles. A delightful depiction of abstract modern art, this design is chain stitched into a meta-motif of the soul approaching the tree of life.
