As we approach the end of the year and the Festive period, there comes a time when we need to actually start buying presents, not just noticing them! Of course, depending on who you are buying for, the type of presents that you go for can change totally.
I mean, you wouldn’t buy a kid an old piece of art, and you wouldn’t buy your grandfather an Xbox 360, would you? Finding the right Christmas gifts is always very important. Especially in these financially difficult times, it’s hard to find gifts that aren’t just waste of money.
Art has, of course, always been a popular choice when buying for adults. People with their own homes are always looking for something a little bit different for their art collection, and tapestries are perfect for just that. As we all move away from the era of filling our walls with movie and music posters, and towards more traditional art methods, tapestries for framing are the perfect solution. It’s really easy to find a truly sublime piece of art which you will struggle to find elsewhere when browsing through wall tapestries.
In terms of finding really unique, powerful art the best place to look is in Eastern Europe. In the last couple of centuries, Eastern Europe has served as a breeding ground for talented artists and they have in turn produced many outstanding tapestries for framing.
Tapestries are a textile art, which are usually woven with two interlaced threads running parallel to the length and width of the tapestry. Usually depicting extremely emotional or colourful images, tapestries make a real impact on any home they are placed within. The reason they look so good is that they are not just printed out – they are genuinely woven. If you own a tapestry, there is a high chance it has been made completely unique and from total scratch. The threads tend to be made up of linen or cotton, with silk, gold or silver in the picture to add another level of class.
Some of the greatest parts of nature and history have been captured in wall tapestries. For example, this picture of four deer in a forest just sums up the perfection that is nature. Before we brought down the land with our industry, the world looked just like this picture depicts. It’s truly a stunning piece of artistry and would look perfect framed in a sitting room.
Tapestries offer a different style and perspective to your usual painting styles, and have commonly been one of the most enjoyable pieces of art you can pick up today. When it comes to finding the right type of art, it’s important to get the real deal and not the quickest alternative. Tapestries are very much the real deal, so why not consider picking some up for the Festive period to really complete the look of your home? They last for many years and offer a significantly higher level of depth and quality than your average paintings!
