While we're on the subject from the previous post, here be another tapestry panel design of Edmund Dulac, woven by Leo Belmonte.
Edmund Dulac — Danaë — 1917
Danaë — impregnated by Zeus, who came to her in the form of golden rain — has been a favorite subject for artists for centuries. I'm sure it has nothing to do with being a really neat rationale for painting a nude woman in her bed.

My name is Thom Buchanan.
I'm an artist and photographer.
People are my favorite subjects to portray in art and photos. My wife (and studio partner) has called that my 'people skills', as I've been passionately creating portrait studies for many years.
I refer to myself as a pictorialist, a combination of image-making and journalist. Images are my life.
