Memling - a historical tapestry taken from the painting - Vase of Flowers - by Hans Memling - is a Collection with three sizes - and three color cominations ( for the kits ). This is the original color scheme from the painting - using slightly brighter and darker reds.
The Memling design perfectly illustrates Hans Hoffman's theory of push-pull - in which adjacent contrasting colors confuse the viewer's depth perception and create the illusion of movement. Even without the colors - the repeated geometrics give the same sense of space and motion. Northern Renaissance artists were past masters at the use of tiled floors and *Oriental* motifs to walk the viewer into and through the painting.
These designs are dated within the Medieval ages - although the step-form cross composition is one of the oldest designs from the Urartu and Phrygian Empires - about 1,200 B.C.
The geometrical patterns repeated in the six central motifs are very unusual in needlepoint panel designs - requiring precise painting onto each canvas. The Large Memling Panels also make into firescreens and may be joined endlessly to finish into carpets and rugs.
