Oversized Damasks

Yes, I do love damasks, especially oversized damasks. They catch my eye every time, especially those incorporated into small, usually glass, tiles. They demand to be admired.
Damask, thought to have originated in Damascus, Syria, is probably the most popular woven pattern with any complexity. It enjoyed enormous favor in Europe from the mid-15th century on and is still favored today.
I am still working on a texture finish of small mosaic tiles with a gold leaf damask pattern. As soon as I get far enough, I’ll post pictures.
In the meantime, enjoy these oversized damasks!
