Nuragic Black Tapestry
Designed by Roberto Sironi in collaboration with Pretziada and Mariantonia Urru, the Nuragic tapestry draws inspiration from aerial views of migration and architecture of native Sardinian tribes. The name ‘Nuragic’ comes from the ‘Nuraghe’, ancient megalithic stone structures found all over the island of Sardinia and built between 1900 and 730 B.C. The tapestry overlap bird’s-eye views of these structures in various scales, as well as proposing an interpretation of trade routes through the mountainous terrains. The different weaving techniques and materials used complements the juxtaposition of the various worlds. Hand-woven by artisan weaving workshop Mariantonia Urru, the Nuragic tapestry features hand-embroidered phrases from the mysterious Nuragic language and is finished with a hand-knotted fringe.
Pure Sardinian wool and silk embroidery.
